We dined here on Saturday night. Food was delicious. Great friendly service and reasonably priced. Will definitely be going back again. Worth the 1 hour ride there and back.

Beautiful, freshly prepared, delicious UK style Indian food. Great family run restaurant, always rammed and very popular for good reason!

We were looking forward to eating here given my husband had read many reviews on the place. Whilst the restaurant is large and has a good outdoor area, the food was disappointing. The butter chicken was not authentic at all but the other balti dishes we tried were OK. The naan was great. Whilst we enjoyed it, we probably wouldn't return as we didn't feel it was authentic Indian food.

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review.
We appreciate your feedback and always look for ways we can improve customer satisfaction.
We advertise and promote the restaurant as a 'british indian restaurant'
cooking and serving 'british indian foods'.
This style of cooking has been adapted in the united kingdom over the past 60-100 years
to suit the locals tastes. Many dishes such as chicken tikka masala and phal were invented in the UK to suit the brits.
We are sorry that you expected authentic indian food, however this is not what we specialize in, rather authentic 'british' indian food.
Once again, thank you for your feedback.

Our whole family love this restaurant, originally from Birmingham UK, we felt at home straight away. The staff are very friendly and the food is superb. We eat here pretty regularly and have always been pleased with the food and service. We also have a friend who visits occasionally from NT, and this is where he insists on going every time he comes for a visit.

We visit this restaurant regularly & they have never let us down. Balti-style is a different method of cooking Indian that originated in the UK. Its very hard to describe the difference, but Balti-style requires alot more skill from the chef, and results in a deeper, more balanced, combination of flavours. These guys clearly use fresh ingredients & take pride in their product.

They have a variety of dishes, some with minimal spice, right thru to dishes that will challenge the biggest chilli expert. Prices are reasonable, parking is close, and they welcome BYO wine.
