I've been here a few times over the last few years and have enjoyed it, but came in a group of about 15 tonight and the experience was really bad. The menu was set with only 6/7 curries to chose from, and the starter course...More

Great food, that is really flavoursome. We started with the Chat Bombs, which are taste explosions in the mouth, so fragrant and flavoursome. We then shared 2 of the lunchtime tiffin boxes, which gave us a great selection of dishes. The dhals were amazingly good....More
