Visited with a friend, food was freshly prepared, staff were attentive and friendly jalfrazi tested excellent, chicken pieces were high quality and mushroom rice was excellent. I would highly recommend visiting this restaurant and will return.

This is both our regular place to go out for curry and our go to for takeaway delivery. The food is delicious, portions are just right and the prices are very reasonable. It is a lovely peaceful place to eat out, clean with a relaxing...atmosphere. Service is excellent and the staff are awesome. I can heartily recommend the murghi chom chom starter - my husband will occasionally have two of these for a main because it is his absolute favourite.More

Customer service over the phone TERRIBLE. Delivery time of 2 hours TERRIBLE. Food was TERRIBLE it was inedible so salty never had a bhuna that was bright red before both meals tasted the same. Rice was just awful and the naan stodgy, the popadums tasted...like ear wax flat and dark yellow. Do not waste your hard earned money on people who do not seem to care about there food or customers. Never again we had eaten in the restaurant a few months ago food was good so was shocked at what we were served tonight hope I'm not ill after eating a little. Waste of £30 I won't see a refund I'm guessingMore

We ordered a take away and were advised delivery would be in an hour. It did take a great deal longer and a phone call from us after 90 minutes to see where it was. However when it did arrive half an hour later the...food was tepid which was a shame as it did taste okay. What was disappointing was that the mushroom and cauliflower bhuna came in a side dish Size portion but was charged at a main portion price. That needed to be a proper portion not a small portion. Rice accompaniment was thought to be microwaved and didn't taste like genuine pilau rice. In the past we have eaten in the restaurant and been happy with the taste and standard of the food. So the takeaway was underwhelming.More

Delivery order made at 7.50pm. Advised 45 minutes, we are less than a mile away. Called at 9.00pm and told another 25 minutes and would add pakoras for inconvenience. Didnt arrive at 9.25, called again at 9.45 an told another 10 minutes as it had...left (didn't take 10 minutes to address). Told him to refund the money, but was obstinate, again told to refund and not deliver, but was obstinate, said he would put extra food in for inconvenience, so he had lied about it leaving and be 10 minutes. Told to refund, he hung up, tried to call back, no answer. Food arrived at 10.10 (2hr 20mins) not the 45 as advised. Rude, un-professional liars, terrible customer service. Be warned !!More

Second visit here, it's been a while as we don't live in Kingstanding but worth the travelling. Beautiful food, served hot and really fresh and good value too, interesting things on the menu I've not seen anywhere else, apparently they don't serve alcoholic drinks, so...bring your own, but this didn't bother us anyway. We'd go again anytime, love it, love it.More

Avoid like the plague visited 20 mins before closing time to order takeaway was stunned when waiter came out from kitchen followed by a greasy horrible grey rat. Unbelievably whilst trying to chase it with a saucepan he was claiming it was a tame pet...rat owned by the chef. I said your taking piss what chef as a pet rat. As 4 waiters joined the chase and cornered the so called pet rat I left building without my takeaway which luckily I hadn’t paid in advance for.. never I shall I return .. yukMore

Can't fault prep and collection time, however that's where the good things end. When I went to collect my order, I noticed that the poppadoms were missing, so went back in to the restaurant to fetch them, and then a member of staff came out...to my car saying that the mango chutney and onion salad was also missing. These issues were dealt with swiftly. However, the food was terrible. I ordered the Lamb Kufta Palok which tasted like eating spoonfulls of salt, with very dry lamb. The special fried rice again tasted really salty. The chicken pakora was dry and overcooked. Out of my whole meal the only thing that was barely edible was the poppadoms. Everything else went into the bin. I do not recommend this place at all, and I will not be returning anytime soon.More

Went for the eat out to help out deal. Service was the worst I have experienced in any restaurant. Waited 90 minutes for our food. It was quiet busy but no busier than any other restaurants doing the same deal. Food was ok, we were...starving by the time it came but still most of us left food as it just wasn’t very nice. Glad I tried this place whilst it was half price, would have been livid if I had to pay full price for such substandard food and service.More

The service thise evening was appalling, the time to get asked would you like a drink or poppadoms was at least 20 minutes despite the restaurant being very quiet. The poppadoms weren't fresh either very stale or shop bought. The samosa starter also wasnt freshly...prepared and was still slightly cold in the centre as if it were frozen. The jalfrezi was mediocre at best. After the mains were finished we asked for the bill while the table was being cleared, the staff required 2 more reminders to eventually bring it to the table. Overall very dissatisfied with the experience in this restaurant.More

Service was very friendly, but very slow despite being quiet, took for ever to get a drink. Poppadoms took a while to come swell and tasted stale or store brought. Onion bhaji starter was good, the only positive in terms of food. Butter chicken was...a brown colour, not the typical red or orange that is delicious elsewhere. It was far too sweet and didn't look very appetising. Order a murgh masala, out came a chicken tikka masala, it was alright but wasn't what we ordered. Garlic Naan was alright. Would not return.More
