I have eaten at this restaurant a few times, and the food has always been great. There's a great choice on the menu, and the explanation of what's what is extremely useful. The staff are so friendly and helpful, and nothing is too much trouble. I've also had takeaways, and they have been just as good. I would definitely recommend the Essence of India.

Went in on reccomendation of trip advisor at 7pm Sunday night, there was already a couple of tables in, which is a good sign. We opted for the hot buffet which had a choice of four main courses , pilau rice, samosas, a spinach dish, bombay potatoes and naan bread. Everything was absolutely delicious and piping hot. For £11 you could not go wrong. Staff were extremely friendly and attentive. By the time we left an hour later there was only one table left. Will go again if ever i am visiting the area again.
