The restaurant was quite when we visited and the service was a little slow surprisingly. The one waitress was struggling to get on top of the orders. The selection of curry was fine but my choice of Lamb Jalfrazi was not what I expected. It may be because I am familiar with UK curries where a Jalfrezi comes with large chunks of meat in a light brown/yellow sauce with whole chillies, peppers, kafir leaves, onion, tomato and other veg. The taste is usually hot and spicy then a chilli will blow your head off! The dish that I got was a dark brown sauce with absolutely no vegetables and small brown lumps of lamb. Seriously it look like something you would pour out for your dog’s dinner. The taste was ok but overall it was bland and unappealing. Overall, if you are a Brit... give it a miss.

This was an ok curry night out. The restaurant is clearly popular with groups. We enjoyed our meal which was as described on the menu but not particularly authentic Indian flavours. Tasty though. The service is pleasant if a little slow. There are other Indian places in town where the food is better but the overall experience here is good.

Great authentic food with busy atmosphere which makes for a great meal. The service is good with a cheerful and chatty manager. You know this place is good by the fact it's always full and serves so many takeaways.
