As a family we went here for my daughters birthday meal... 8 people in total. Absolutely no other customers the whole night. Meal was beautiful however the service was severely lacking! We had to call the girl to our table to ask if she was going to take our orders from starters to main meal after being seated for 20+... More

My wife and I called in yesterday evening and to our surprise, it was quiet. Gentleman took us to the seated area where we enjoyed a couple of crispy Popadums with freshly made dips. We moved on to vegetable Bhajis with fresh salad (no soggy lettuce here). They were delicious. Next onto the mains. My wife had a chicken dish... More

This place just gets worse and worse. The only thing is that when the food actually arrives it is always very good. If they had more cooks and another person on the floor it would be great

I have eaten here and had their take away meals. The meals do not disappoint, good portions, piping hot and beautifully cooked. The atmosphere in the restaurant is lovely. The only {small} egative point, is that is a wee bit cold. So, wear your thermals!!

My family have eaten from here now a number of times and I must say that I thought the food was decent. The service is what you would expect from a good eatery and the price is reasonable. Tonight though, I asked for a nan bread with my meal instead of rice and they said that wouldn't be a problem.... More

Before we moved away this was our favourite Indian restaurant so we were itching to get down here as soon as we moved back! Didn't realise it is under new owners and unfortunately we were less than impressed! Overcharged for our order (by £13!!) And the food was over cooked, chewy and cold. Luckily there are other better restaurants close... More
