Had dinner alone in this Indian restaurant, service was very pleasant and the food was just fine, laminated menus an simple décor but well prepared food, made this a good visit.

“Loved the food, Amazing Chef.”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Really nice atmosphere, calm and relaxing place, for sure. The experience that I had there will last for a really long time. I like it a lot and have been here four times already. I can not wait to go there again to try out the other courses. The prices are reasonable, I'd say very reasonable and you can have a filling meal from £10+ and the portions are huge! The Service is quick and The owner and head chef Abdul, is friendly and humble and his cooking is amazing and I'd score it a 10/10. Only issue I'd say is that it's not a large, packed restaurant, but that comes with it's benefits too.

“Excellent food but Greasy Plates”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Ate here on Sunday night after reading the reviews. We chose the '4 courses for £10' deal and were surprised that it included everything on the menu, although we had to pay £2 extra for king prawn. The restaurant was empty and quite cold so we had to eat with our coats on. The place was nicely decorated and clean and tidy but all the plates were greasy, which did put us off a bit. The menu was straight forward but lacked any description as to what anything was so we had to ask the waiter. When the food arrived it was very hot any plenty of it, so no complaints there. We would recommend this restaurant as on the whole you you wouldn't be disappointed.

“Regulars”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

I come with my 2 friends at least once every 2 months. Love the food, although it can taste different depending on whether Adul (owner) does the cooking or not. What it lacks in ambinece is made up for with the friendly staff and quality cooking.
