Great food and fast! Enjoyed my visit and eventhough the restaurant seemed busy the food arrived very quickly and it lived up to the recomendations from a friend. Definately will be back next time

“Ok, room for improvement”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We normally go to the Rajpoot next door, where the food is good but are tired of sitting next to dirty curry splattered radiators and walls. Food was ok, but nothing to write home about, felt the restaurant was badly laid out and the pointless reception area looked like a taxi office waiting room. Menus were tatty and greasy, desert menu by tropical ices was rubbish and a very good reason not to order any deserts. Come on boys you can do better that this.

“Very average”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Bit disaapointed. Heard a lot of hype about how good it was but found it quite bland and dull. It has a contemporary feel to it but isn't "convincing". Service was a bit tardy. It was OK but nothing special. Curies were a bit ordinary.

“not a culinary delight at all”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

We tried this restaurant and would not recommend to anyone- bar perhaps those who have been out on the razzle and therefore have no taste or palate left for proper food. This like many curry houses I have come across is basically taking the michael- food is really not quality food at all and I doubt very much whether the people serving it would eat such foods themselves. Places like these serve concoctions that suit those late nighters who would not realise the difference.I can cook you a more authentic curry for the same or cheaper price and I haven't had the training- just the interest and curiosity to find out what it should taste like- not this mush.
No ambiance whatsoever and shabby looking furniture plus the staff are not bothered if you are enjoying yourselves or not . Never will return.
