“Massively disappointed - Twice!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

I've been to this restaurant twice for family gatherings and both times been let down. The food came out and was lukewarm, the taste of all the food was bland and it had no definitive "kick" to it (I ordered a Madras and wife ordered Vindaloo). I was told this was the best Indian/Tandori in Whitchurch by relatives but shall definitely not be going back anytime soon.

“Good grub, great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

If you go by the exterior and the location (right on the A41) you might wonder what to expect. I have to say initially, my expectations were low.

However, I'm glad to say I was wrong. Friendly service, huge portions (the Naan's are the size of a cushion), great value and overall very nice food. I had the chicken Jalfrezi which was very good. Dessert was not up to the same standard however. I had a lemon sorbet served in a frozen lemon but it was rather tasteless and watery unfortunately.

I will return though as the main curry was lovely.

“Great Indian, Good Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

My husband visited this Indian with his mates recently and had an excellent meal. Not only was it good value for money, all dishes were freshly cooked from scratch (very important when you have a nut allergy), service was excellent and the nan breads were massive. Very good quality and quantity of food. Shame it was closed the night after as he was going to take some more mates. Next time he needs to take me!
