“Nice surroundings but nothing special food wise”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Having read the reviews here, I thought a post theatre trip would be a good idea. Pleasant enough interior and attentive service despite it being late(ish) on a Saturday evening.

Starters remarkably bland despite being served quickly. Main courses better but still edging towards neutrality in terms of spice (I speak as someone with an Asian palate), by this I don't mean heat.

I can't fault the very reasonable selection or pricing, but the delivery of the actual food was not up to scratch. I am not very familiar with the area but I wonder whether there is a lack of local competition?

“Excellent Friendy & Comfortable”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Came here Dec 12 having read the positive reviews. I was not disappointed, from the moment I walked in I was met by the smiling friendly staff and owner. The restaurant is very modern yet atmospheric and comfortable, The menu offers a good choice from contemporary to "traditional" dishes. I had the usual poppadoms and chutneys to start - light & crispy with fresh generous chutneys. For main I chose the Tandoori special which was a mixed grill served on a sizzling platter. The spicing and taste was superb accompanied by a garlic naan and washed down with a bottle of cold cobra. Would highly recommend and hope to return..

“Best Indian I have ever eaten.”
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

We visited the restaurant to try and bring our baby on! I don't usually eat Indian food - I usually find it quite greasy and never enjoy it that much.
We had a great meal. The poppadums and dips were yummy, the curries were very tasty, fresh and not at all greasy. It was quick and the staff were very friendly.
Great stuff!
