We had a lovely meal late in the evening. Some unusual/ interesting dishes available in addition to the usual range you’d expect. The owner was really helpful in advising dishes to suit our tastes. Very welcoming. We would definitely go back.

This restaurant has no drinks licence, so you bring your own with no charge. Good number of special dishes I've never seen before and all could be customised at time of ordering to your level of heat. A little slow to serve, but very busy...including a huge birthday party on the first floor that evening.More

Take-away food was cold. The tikka masala must have had half a pound of sugar in it. King prawn bhuna had a lovely flavour, although it was cold. Naan breads were small

Having a rare date night, we decided to go to our favourite restaurant. We both ordered the starter of the Chicken Bari which was tandoori chicken stuffed with chilli and cheese. This was lovely but there is a kick. For mains my girlfriend had a...Chicken Raja and I let Zak choose mine and he plumped for the Lamb Karahi and I wasn’t disappointed plus I had a parathia with this for the first time. Zak knows his stuff and he is good with his customers. This restaurant always delivers and never lets us downMore

Due to COVID we have not been here for some time and I have to say we were not disappointed. The food was as good as we recalled, if not better. As usual the service was attentive and welcoming. We are very much looking forward...to visiting again soon.More

Dont belive the hype as this place has has drastically lost its identity. Thank god thats the last time. Try bluff other punters from now on!!!More

I'm not knocking this local Indian restaurant. By most standards the food and service is very good. This is more cautionary advice for those with additional needs or young children. We had an infant and an elderly disabled person as part of our group -...the disabled member of our party had to make their way up and down a difficult staircase to access the loos and the baby was changed in the boot of the car due to their being no usable facilities. I would recommend based on these points, but if you've got an elderly/disabled relative or an infant... Go elsewhere.More

We very luckily managed to get a table here last minute whilst visiting the area. My nephew has a nut allergy and the waiter was amazing in checking and reassuring us that this was his priority. It was very nice to find a place that...would tailor the menu to what we wanted, meat, sauce, spice, we basically asked for what we wanted and the chef made it accordingly. The food was exceptional, I’m a big fan of curry and this was the best meal I’ve had in years! The premises doesn’t have an alcohol license which I was hesitant about but we popped next door to the shop and everyone got the drinks they wanted to take in which worked out very well. The restaurant supplied water and glasses for the table. Only regret is that it’s a 3 hour drive from home or I’d be a regular. Well worth a visit in my families opinion.More

What a meal. My partners dish was top notch. She always chooses the best dish on the menu. I think I know best but I always end up so jealous of what she has. I need to listen to her more often when ordering. I...will return here on my next visit to Rugeley.More
