Me and my now girlfriend went for an evening meal here. The service was very prompt and courteous and the food was delicious.

More recently we sampled their takeaway service which was excellent; they had the exact food we ordered delivered in a reasonable time and the food again was delicious.

It is a bit dark in the interior however and the tables are quite close together, but generally it is excellent value for money.

Bought this on a groupon deal food was ok nothing to shout about but lots of competion in Loughborough so you have to be better than average and this was average. The crunch came for me when we had loads left and i asked them to package it up to take away. bearing in mind we had already paid for the meal the said there was a £2.00 charge to take away food we had paid for. i did say you are joking and no they were not. The waiter said he would see the manager but he just milled around at the back then came back and said we still had to pay if we took it away. so i refused and left the food to go to waste which was criminal. I will not be going back as far better restaurants in the local area.

Of its type this was a good curry house but it is along somewhat old fashioned lines when it comes to food. If you want the standard dishes, cooked well and served with a smile then you cant go wrong. I would prefer a more adventurous menu and perhaps a little more light and some background music.

Had planned to go to a ‘well known’ Indian restaurant which did an all day Sunday ‘eat as much as you like’ buffet only to find it had been taken over by a Chinese take-a-way/restaurant? Anyway we came across this restaurant and decided to eat here.
We arrived at about 19:15hrs and made the number of taken tables to around 4. The lone waiter greeted us and introduced us to a table for four. We ordered drinks (Recommend the mongoose beer) and began to read the menus he fetched us. There was a large selection of starters and mains etc.
We ordered 4 starters which we shared between us. Each came with the side salad of salad leaves, lemon wedge, cucumber slice and tomato wedge (so not sure what a previous reviewer was talking about re salad as it is what I expected). The chutney tray and popodoms were as we expected – onion salad, mint yogurt, (which my 2 sons polished off), and mango chutney which I found delightful.
The place soon got busy throughout the evening and I felt really sorry for the waiter who, with a little help from a kitchen-dining area runner, did well to tend to everyone’s needs as well as deal with frequent telephone orders/bookings, more visiting diners and the delivery of food freshly prepared. There appeared to be plenty of demand for take-a-way orders too which the waiter also had to organise!
At around 21:00hrs he had to turn away a small family who had obviously not booked and found the place full which he did gracefully and tactfully.
We ordered 3 mains, a side dish and had 3 rice dishes and a naan between us. All 3 mains were different and very tasty and there was very little left when we had done.
To summarise The food was excellent as was the service, beer and ambiance - a great dining experience for my Son’s 19th Birthday treat. We also left a 10% tip!
From and experienced diner especially Indian food.
