Had a couple of takeaway’s in recent months which were mediocre to say the least and expensive at that. This last one was vile. Never again. I’m done. Doesn’t matter what you have, it all tastes the same. You know it’s bad when you see...the staff from there in another up and coming local restaurant ordering food!!!More

Been here many times but not of late due to lockdown. Went again last week, we had heard that food was not as good. Boy was that proved wrong as it was just fabulous. Lots of flavour and generous servings and just as good if...not better than before.We will return soon thank you.More

Me and my partner visited here after a night out sat down and waited ages for someone to come over and take our order While we was waiting we had some popadoms with the mint sauce and we had to wait ages for our main...all the while the manager just sat there chatting to another couple and ignored us that we was waiting to be served We had a prawn curry which was tasteless and looked as if it had been microwaved we paid the bill and left and by the time we got home we was both feeling sick which was either from the salad with the popadoms or the mint sauce as when you walked into the place both of these items was on the front bar in bowls and not being kept refrigerated We will deffo not be returning to this placeMore

This restaurant is literally at the end of my street. I’ve been many times and it is fantastic. I hadn’t had a curry since lockdown so my mate came (socially distanced!) we had a few beers and decided to order a takeaway. As usual absolutely...sensational. I had chicken jalfrezi Vindaloo hot I’m a chilli fiend! So good it brought tears to my eyes with a big grin! Some here say it’s expensive. I can eat quite a bit. But every time I’ve eaten at restaurant I’ve brought home half, frozen and eaten another day. Even better - as all curry is after freezing! So this time no exception. I had my second half tonight and felt I HAD to write a review! If some have not enjoyed they’ve either been very unfortunate or are a little hard to please. Another mate of mind is Indian and says it’s fantastic and we all agree! It has full 5 score on the door too.More

This used to be a fantastic curry 18 months ago, but since then they have chosen the cheap option and made several cuts which have affected the quality of this food. These include watering down the base gravy on takeaways and this results in the...curry separating on your plate and leaving a plate full of water, smaller naan breads, fewer spices in the curry resulting in inconsistency and leaving them bland and tasteless. They have increased the amount of chicken pieces in a curry but this is reflected in the price increase with popular curries bordering £10 for just the curry!!More

I go here quite often with my family, we tend to order the same thing although a lovely selection of main courses. My go to order is the chicken tikka masala which absolutely mouth watering, sometimes I go for the tandoori mixed grill and sometimes...I go for the chicken tikka pieces and chips. Lovely waiter/waitresses’ and a very lovely manger, I highly recommend going here, it’s family-friendly, people of all ages are politer with a warm welcome as they come through the door. There is a big variety of vegan and vegetarian options also. The naan breads are very generous for the price, good portion of rice and chips and the chilli & mint dip you get with the poppadom and onion salad starter is absolutely wonderful. Also a very cultural places, plays a lot of Indian music and Indian classical, even if you go with your family the staff there will treat you and your family as part of their own family. If I could rate this a ten star I definitely would 😁More

We sat down fir out meal, the waitress wasnt very helpful, the food was dry, also too spicey. Overall not very nice and expensive as well. Weve crossed it off our curry house list and wont be going again. One to avoid 🙈

Love this place, very generous portions, good value for money and you can take you're own drinks. Naan bread are massive. Not too fond of the Rogan Josh dishes there, but apart from that I've always enjoyed my meals there.
