We came here on a week night. We were seated quickly but it took
A while to order. The food was average, lacking depth of flavour and seasoning. I've had better Indian food before. The wine was good - a good selection and well priced. I liked the fridge selection to take and heat at home.

Nice food. The menu being different from the usual Indian menu I tried something different. The atmosphere and restaurant are nice relaxed.

The place is stylishly decorated and has a warm and friendly ambience. It has comfortable seating arrangements and informative, welcoming staff. We had curry, naan breads, rice, etc. and it was all absolutely delicious. All in all, we had a lovely evening and recommend this restaurant to everyone who enjoys authentic Indian food. The staff were great.

Asked for plain lassi. Could not supply. Asked for veges, would not add. Asked if any fish. None available. Staff were not accommodating and food was not indian particularly. Staff member commented that they were not really an authentic india place. Fair enough i guess. Was not impressed by food flavour or service. Will not be back. This place will suit people who want a hint of indian but no flair. IE western indian.

Dear Customer
Please accept my deepest apology for not making your visit to our restaurant worth while. We do take into consideration SPECIAL requests from our guests and try to achieve them, making sure that we meet the satisfaction of our customers.
The case you have described seems very out of place as staff should have either spoken to the Manager or the Chef himself, to look after your Special needs. We do make Plain Lassi, even though its not on our menu and if the Fish was not available we must have sold out. We have a lovely Fish dish, Calcutta fish cooked with mustard seeds, with beautiful flavors.
In regards to adding veges I need to stress that some times dishes may or may not suit veges in them and considering with the information we have from you not adding any Veges to your request could be one of those scenario.
Our utmost principle is to make sure we advise you to enjoy the best taste in best possible manner. Again, we do regret you have not had a pleasurable visit.
