We've tried this place twice and couldn't wait to leave as the noise makes for a very unenjoyable experience. They could address this with some accoustic absorbant materials and also some small boothe style areas.

The starters are good but the mains we found just like a supermarket ready meal. For example the chicken Dhansak is far too cumin heavy (classic sign of a poor curry), and has nothing like the depth of flavour you would typically find.

I'm surprised this place has good reviews, must be a lot of people that find a packet curry taste to be a worthwhile experience.

Decent food but bizarre service. The server brought us what was very obviously the wrong dish, then instead of correcting the error, a couple members of the staff attempted to argue with us that a serving of tandoori lamb was, in fact, duck. Rule number one: don't argue with the customer. Rule number two: give even greater consideration to rule number one when you are in the wrong.

Have been using this restaurant for 5 years. Quality of food has always been excellent. Staff are extremely friendly. Parking a bit of a problem but outweighed by an excellent restaurant

It has a lovely evening kind of layout and amazing deals on food. I would say it is one of the best places to eat in town

Took my 17 year old out for half term treat. We shared Poppadoms & pickles as starter. Followed by Chicken Tikka, rice and Nan breads and finished by Coconut ice-cream in the shell
Well paced friendly service. c£24 including soft drink and coffee.
