I visited with my young daughter for dinner. Adam is a very gracious host and his recommendation of chicken dhansak did not disappoint. The butter chicken was also lovely, made to a very high standard.

The staff were all very efficient and friendly and Adam very kindly gave my daughter some sweets and toys which she was over the moon with. I really couldn't ask any more of a restaurant and will definitely visit again when I'm in the area.

Ordered a takeaway (due to Covid restrictions) and it was a real disappointment. The food arrived 25 minutes earlier than requested, and confirmed by the restaurant, so our son hadn’t even got home from work!!! The 2 chicken vindaloos were shocking!! A ‘hunt the chicken’ challenge at least created some ironic humour but the ‘sauce’ was so thin it spread on the plates like water and the whole dish was tasteless with absolutely none of the heat, or potatoes, associated with a normal vindaloo. My chicken jalfrezi had a better kick to it thanks to the few actual chillies in it but was covered in a layer of oil which I had to try to spoon out before I could attempt to eat it. The leaflet accompanying the sealed dishes states that you need to report any issues within 15 minutes of delivery, but because it arrived so early, we only sat down to eat almost 30 minutes later, when our son returned from home dead on the expected delivery time. Probably the most disappointing Indian takeaway we have ever had and we feel completely ripped off.

Last time we had a takeaway from here we were blown away by the quality of food and price but this time round it was very disappointing...

The curries (chicken pasanda, chicken tikka masala) were watered down along with the mango chutney, the chunks of chicken were tough and even saag aloo had been lazily prepared by the chef as they simply cut baby potatoes in half with skins on - this dish the potatoes are meant to be fluffy and blended well into the spinach.

We are skeptical to give them another try after this time.
