“Good classic”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Tried this reputable curry house and was not disappointed. The menu is varied the staff obliging. Food was very good and tasty. The only negative was in my opinion too much ghee on the food,
It is a very busy establishment so at peak times would advise phoning ahead and booking.
Prices are reasonable and it's on well worth a visit, I will be going back!

“Sitar”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Limited menu, service slow, rushed out the door when we wanted to have a few beers after the main, even though it was still quite early and the place was all but empty.... there was 7 of us we are always polite and would have spent a small fortune. I don't think the owner was there, I only saw 2 very young waiters the whole night who acted like they had something better to do, I'm sure if the owner/manager was there the front of house would be much better, however the food was average and we weren't offered a complementary drink with the bill. Four words; MOGUL MOGUL MOGUL MOGUL

“Good little regular”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

This place has been voted the best many times and I can see why

We visited on a Saturday night at a pre booked table and cannot fault the food or the staff

Generous helpings of freshly cooked food and at a reasonable price makes this our favourite time and time again!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

So disappointed with our meal on Monday Buffet evening. 1 meal out of the three was awful and bright green- but most outrageous was the 45 minute wait for our mains, no apology and then charged £3 for a box to take some food home.
