“not as good as it used to be”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

i first went here when it first opened and it was excellent , but i have been having a takeaway for the last few weeks and it hasn't been that good, food not seasoned well enough for me and pretty tasteless to be honest, small portions and quite expensive really i thought,starter,main course,rice and bread was £17 including 10% discount for collection and i ate it all which i normally cannot do if i go anywhere else.

“Ropey meat & rude staff! we will never go back”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We have eaten here a couple times as it is local to us however it has definitely gone down hill. My husband was served a curry with rubbery chicken it was the worst curry he had ever had. He tried to explain to the waiter but he said it was the style of the cooking. We asked to speak yo the manager who then proceeded to ignore us until the end where he reluctantly (no appologise) took the chicken curry off our bill. The whole experience left us feeling abused.

“Lost its way, poor staff, food not as good as it was”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Since a recent raid by immigration officers, this restaurant has gone downhill. Perhaps becuase some of its best staff have gone the service, food and performance has suffered. I recently had a take away and the quality was really poor, portion sizes reduced dramatically and the taste of each dish seemed the same as the next.
I then ate in the restaurant, one I have used frequently since it opened, and again, each dish seemed to be in the same sauce, the service was unfriendly and slow and should you DARE to complain you are treated quite harshly. This is not how it used to be and I hope if they read this they will change. The chef is superb and the same but for some reason it seems to have lost its edge in the face of some competition. Watch your drinks bill also as they load them on if you are in a large party.
