Firm favourite in Stamford. The BEST Chicken Tikka Masala I've had, keep thinking I'll try something else but keep going back to it! Recommend booking, especially Saturday nights or you'll be ordering as take away.

Sadly I didn't have a very good experience at this restaurant, though I put it down to them being overly busy on this evening, as I've heard they're usually very good. We had a table booked at 8.30pm. We weren't seated until 9.00pm (the staff...More
