I don’t usually write reviews but had so many disappointing takeaway curries for a while now from else where this was worth the effort to write a review. Absolutely gorgeous food. Will definitely be ordering again.

I was in on Saturday with my family, and although we were waiting for 2 hours for our food, we had a nice evening until we went to pay for the meal. My father, who frequents the restaurant often, was treated horribly by a waiter...with a beard. Earlier in the meal, my father stated that his food was over salted, another waiter tried it, agreed that it was too salty and offered to take it off the bill. We appreciated the service. When paying, the waiter with a beard refused to take it off the bill, accused us of being too drunk and proceeded to be horrible to our party. I won’t lie, we had a few drinks, yes, but we were not unruly. There was an unfortunate accident where we had a couple of unopened bottles of wine on the table and while grabbing the bottles and all our coats to leave as the rude waiter demanded we did; I dropped the bottle and it smashed. It couldn’t have happened at a worse time. For dropping the bottle, I apologise and would have happily cleaned it up, however, the rude waiter who was stood in front of me said, “you’re lucky I don’t knock you out”. I told the waiter that he was being rude with a few choice words because how else do you expect a person to react to being threatened? I then left immediately because I didn’t want the situation to escalate further. Better to just walk away, especially since there was an 8-year-old with me. We cannot fault the rest of the meal or the service we received from the owner or other staff members. To anyone reading this review debating whether you should go or not, the answer is yes, it is a great restaurant. Please support local businesses and you will not be disappointed by the food here. To the rude waiter, you let down a great local business and made someone who has been coming to your restaurant weekly since it opened feel so unwelcome and unable to come back. Maybe you were having a bad day and I have no ill feelings towards you, but you spoiled a really great day and were the catalyst in sending this meal south. Be better.More

Pleasant enough staff but massive differences between similar dishes. Starter was warm not hot. Ordered 4 mains. Garlic chilli and lamb were both great. Chicken jalfrezi and chicken korai were inedible. Sent both back. Korai was redone and still not tasty so left on the...table. They took one dish off the bill and offered to pack up the korai to which we said no thanks. They wouldn't take the 2nd dish off the bill as the owner wasn't there, even though we asked a few times. Really poor customer service and too many other decent places to eat. I would have adamantly refused to pay for the dish had we not been entertaining guests. Paid the bill and won't be going back.More

Huge family order and did not disappoint. The food was ready for collection immediately upon arrival and the quality of the meal was fantastic. Can’t wait until we are able to visit and sit inside the restaurant to enjoy our next meal!

Ordered for a family of 4 for a birthday celebration due to lockdown . Called early to check they could deliver to us (as out of area) which they were happy to. I requested a 7pm delivery. Turned up bang on time. Food was hot...and delicious, couldn’t fault it. Will definitely order again.More

The food is always excellent along with the service. I can also recommend a take away and good value for money.
