We visited between Christmas and New Year. Everyone had a great meal, could not fault the food or service despite the restaurant being packed. Our visitors from New York and Philadelphia loved the food and the atmosphere. We will definitely go back and take more of our many visitors.

Came here specifically due to the reviews. I had a garlic lamb curry which tasted wonderful. My partner had a fish curry that was also fabulous; but the reason I've given only 3 stars is because the lamb was very tough and had a cheap muttony flavour to it that virtually overpowered the sauce. Having just been to Rick Steins... More

Went here over the Christmas period, wow what a good curry. The staff couldn't be more helpful, especially looking through the menu, my husband wanted to try a new dish, they really spent time explaining things to us. We ended up having a selection of dishes and they were all delicious. Will be definitely going again . Probably tomorrow 😍😍....... More
