I've eaten a lot of Indian Food over the years and this place was really great, food is top-notch and very reasonably priced. Best Chicken Patia I've had in years, and the Onion Bhajis are to die for!

An extensive menu which offers a great choice of seafood and chef specials I opted for the mixed fish starter which was so delicately cooked and a perfect accompaniment to a selection of side dishes. The chicken dishes are beautifully cooked with large pieces of chicken breast and lovely sauces. I could just eat my way through most of the side dishes (and practically did), the Tarka Dhal is very creamy and a particular favourite of mine, the Aubergine side was very tasty as was the delicious cauliflower bhaji. The food here is not cheap, but not expensive either but you will leave feeling you have had a lovely meal with good service. I often have a take away from here as the food is so good.

A most enjoyable return visit. I my opinion the food quality is consistently well above average and most enjoyable. I had tandoori lamb chops and thought they were really good. The menu is unusually comprehensive particuly with respect to fish based dishes.The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. The portions were good and the prices reasonably particularly considering the quality. The restaurant was comfortable and the tables not too close to each other. Booking recommended at weekends - can be done by e-mail.

The food is fresh and light, so we really enjoyed the meal. The fish curry was excellent and the Goan chicken really nice. Service was slow and scatty on a busy Friday night. One dish with beers set us back £25 each.
