The staff here are rude! I booked a table on the internet and the page said they will call to confirm, didn't receive a call with in half hour I rang them, the person I spoke to was very rude. Got to the restaurant and the same person I spoke to was there and he was very rude! Everyone else... More

My king prawn nawabi consisted of a vivid orange, watery, tasteless sauce with a few rubbery prawns floating around in it. I'm not exaggerating: that was it. My two previous takeaways have been similarly poor. This place used to be good especially if you were eating in but has gone downhill in recent years and I will never go again.... More

Honestly....anyone who says the food is nice needs to get to a proper indian. King prawn madras was bland and tasteless. Staff seemed like they would rather be somewhere else. Only reason it has a two rating is the beer was nice (bottled) and the place looks nice.

Not impressed starters were nothing special Part of mine was burnt to a crisp My main dish was very tasteless and gristly lamb The peshwari naan bread also very bland. My partner had the three curries and these came on a cold glass platter. So everything was quickly cold and more sauce than meat. Waiters not friendly at all. I... More

I was surprised at the quality of the Indian meal we had here as it is in a small village, but it was excellent. The service was very friendly, the wine was very good and reasonably priced, but it was the food that made it for me.

We had an evening meal here and although my wife not a lover of spicy food, she enjoyed the meal. Staff were polite and helpful. Meal was tasty and of reasonable price. They also provided a take away service.

I collected this as I was staying across the way. Staff aren't that friendly and seemed quite bored. Food was ready within 30 mins and was cooked fresh. However the korma was bland and the naan a bit burnt. The poppodoms and pickles were however lovely but the onion bhaji tasted as if it had been re-fried. I actually left... More

Sorry, my husband and I did not enjoy our meal here. Staff were friendly enough. Great choice of dishes at very reasonable prices but quality was poor. Chicken pieces in my curry were lacking in flavour and I suspect had been cut up from frozen blocks as they were all pretty uniform. They were supposed to be tandoori. My husband... More
