We had poppadums, onion salad, mint sauce, bahjis, samosas, and a selection of curries, including lamb and chicken. Not much for vegetarians but chef kindly offered to cook me... More

Need to book in advance for the weekend evenings. Parking sometimes not available outside restaurant. Good customer service. Food good although not outstanding and I have had better. Usual 4 condiments with popadoms. Cokes very expensive at £2.90 a glass! Can cater for large groups as there is an upstairs dining area.

Arrived on time, 20 minutes later one of the waiters was asked if we could have some drinks 20 minutes after they arrived they were not busy. Our food (prebooked) started arriving... More

Being a spicy food lover the waiter recommended me the adraki aloo ghoost and for my wife the tandoori mix grill; what splendid dish these are, very relaxed and calm atmosphere with soothing music,...
