We found this restaurant by chance and am so glad we did! The service was brilliant and the food was amazing! The chef made us some incredible dishes, including the best dhal I have ever tasted. I am surprised to read some of the other negative reviews on here; our experience was a totally positive one. The food was very fresh, authentic and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We were looking forward to their offers they have on a Wednesday and went about 6pm to ensure we got a seat and found it was not open! No times advertsied or details as to why it was not open! Very disappointing

A small cramped restaurant. No waiter etiquette; aprons were not worn, they put their fingers in the glasses as they carried drinks. My Coke was actually flat! Their hands were all over the plates as they were handed to you (ours were even taken off us and given to another customer!) The main course was only luke warm, the chips were covered in black bits from dirty cooking oil. Overall would not recommend unless standards improved dramatically

As the title suggests, it was OK - couldn't fault the service, the waitress was efficient & courteous - the food wasn't the best I'm afraid - with the curries having an almost 'ready meal' way about them... On a plus point, a bottle of house white was very reasonable & drinkable!
