Went as a party for 8, it's a tough call as to what was better, the service or food?? Both were superb. The menu is wonderful, the food was sublime, everything about our night was a joy. If you are near Kettering well worth a visit. I will definitely revisit this restaurant as it is very good value for the... More

We visited here after reading a few reviews and getting a personal recommendation. From outside you can't really tell what to expect - the name is odd and it is up a flight of of stairs so you can't get an idea of the place until you are in it. However once you enter, it is spacious, clean and comfortable.... More

I've heard the food here is normally of a good standard. But when we visited for a friends birthday we were very disappointed. Despite pre ordering food came out at different times and was mostly cold (one dish even included raw chicken). On the plus side, they allowed us to keep individual tabs which made settling the bill much simpler.

The restaurant was fairly quiet for a Tuesday night with only 6 tables occupied but still with a pleasant ambience. We'd planned to take advantage of the meal deal but in the end all chose off the full menu. All 4 of us really enjoyed our meals but I'll focus on mine; delicious cinnamon chilli fish, cooked to perfection with... More

The restaurant was very quiet on a freezing cold January evening, however, the welcome we received could not have been warmer. The food was fabulous too and we shall definitely go back.

Both the ambience and the food was very good. There are some interesting chef's special dishes and the staff are efficient and polite. Everything about the visit was good.

This was our second visit and we enjoyed both. This is a very eclectic Indian restaurant with a menu that incorporates some untypical ingredients and unusual dishes alongside the curry house standards. What makes it satisfactory is less the breadth of its ambition so much as the fact the cooking in our experience has been spot-on both when we have... More
