We went on a Monday night, one other table occupied. Its still little chef shaped but newly decorated, clean and comfortable. Welcome was pleasant but not over friendly.

Despite there being only two tables we found the service slow, were not given or offered any popadoms while we waited, which is a first ever. Order taken on an iPad but again not very friendly.

The menu was varied and interesting but we went for our usuals so we could compare. Starter was very tasty but possibly over presented with a drizzle of mango and yogurt when I prefer to put it on myself and have more of it.

Main course followed after a sensible wait. The china they use is lovely, food is very well presented. Isn't a balti supossed to be in a balti dish though?

My main course was very strongly coloured and incredibly sweet. I have a sweet tooth but it was very very sweet, my coke cola didn't taste sweet while eating it. Rice, Nan and side dish all lovely.

Again when we'd finished service was slow to clear up and very slow to give us a bill.

The other table was offered complimentary drinks, not us, tragic.

Overall pretty good but with some areas they could improve on, smile and be friendly, talk about the menu rather than hide behind the iPad. Tweak the food and speed up the service.

Probably return at some point if it doesn't surcome to the curse of that building!!

Best Indian food I have had in a long time Fresh tasty with good portions The outlook is poor overlooking a busy main road and situated by a large garage The staff are pleasant and quietly do they job without any fuss The only downside is the price By far the most expensive Indian in the area Will only by used as a special treat instead of a regular place to eat

Newly opened restaurant opp Lion Quay Hotel and by Shell Garage, surroundings not ideal but the food quality excellent. Unusual choices such as Goan Blussi Fish. Signature dishes and starters from award winning chef. Large portions and very attentive staff, even offered drinks on the house. Sunday buffet for only £9.95
Shame about the décor but worth a visit.
