Have to say I always go to this restaurant and have the same meal. I know it's always good but I thought I would have a change. I went for the taka taka and omg the flavours were incredible. It's a must try restaurant and not just your usual Indian. 5 stars well done

We regularly eat Indian meals and found the service here good and the atmosphere enjoyable. Although I asked for a hot curry, expecting my order to be spicey, it arrived mild. Very disappointed.

.. we loved the vibe, loved the food and service too - its such a cool cosy cottage! The lighting & ambiance is very warming. Hopefully the music will be Indian rather than western 'pop' next time we go :-) This is a quality place, with quality dishes that taste delicious. We cant wait to go back!

Great meal, staff were friendly and helpful. Nice atmosphere. We sat near the outside seating area which was light and airy but cosy. They have a vine outside overhanging seating area which was very pleasant, especially when we were able to try the lively grapes the owner picked for us.

Looks fairly standard on the outside but lovely ambiance inside. More a fusion menu than Indian. Great specials. Will be back!

We decided to take the Kids for a Curry rather than cooking at Home. The Food was great as always, the Service was attentive but not in your face, overall good value for money.
