Came here last March and was sure I would return. The quality is the same - high. The service is excellent - although it was a quiet early lunchtime. The wine was good too. Will be coming back soonish.

Getting your drink after you finished you've meal might be an indication that your service is failing - four wait staff wandering around wiping tables ignoring customers - it's the customer that will give you money not an empty table

The vegetable samosas were delicious as was the naan. The butter chicken was good but the Bombay curry had little taste and certainly little curry flavour. We ordered medium as there was no hot option. It really needs to be spiced up.

Not really. Jeans are fine. Probably wouldn't wear shorts and thongs.
