I had my 21st birthday dinner here last night with about 30 friends. They fitted us all in comfortably and did not mind when I changed the reservation a few times. really lovely restaurant and the perfect place for a BYOB curry with lots of people! especially with the £10 student deal they have going on! The staff were very... More

Visited here early evening one Saturday as a couple. We were unsure of how busy the place got so I made a booking for the table. There were only a few other people dining during our visit but toward the end the tables started to fill. Food was nice, most of our dishes were tasty - there was one starter... More

Brilliant attentive staff, lovely food. Usually buy a take away from here. Decided to have a meal at the restaurant. Delighted by the main guy who really looked after us.

Not being the biggest fan of curry, this was rather yummy! Having discovered that I like lamb patia this is now my dish of choice. We were there early, so got excellent service and the food came out quickly. Rather trendy and quirky place, which was very cool...

Went for a birthday meal. The food took literally 2 hours to arrive. When asked whether we could have some money off we were just told the reason was the chef had a headache.... No discount was offered...

Visited last night and the food was just amazing. All six of us agreed that the Peshwari naan was the best we've had! A decent sized menu with lots of choice, including Red Snapper fish dishes for those who want to try something a little different! The lamb dishes we had were all incredible! All of the staff are incredibly... More

Above average Indian/Pakistani food, with very attentive service and a very good price. The manger wanted feedback on the peshwari nan I had, as they'd just changed the recipe to be slightly thicker bread with much more filling - it was excellent, one of the best I've had anywhere. The main courses were very tasty and were offered with a... More

You have the chance to try quiet a few dishes as the reasonable portions come with a great price. Great selection of choices, everything we tried was very tasty and the gentlemen serving us was also really kind a kept himself busy all the way long we were there. You can bring your own drink here which is great touch!... More

Been here a lot (a LOT!!), used to live round the corner and still come in from out of town for their food. It is exceptional. Starters are amazing; Snapper Pakoora is the best starter I've ever had at an Indian. Mains, while being on the hot side (I prefer medium) are so, so good: lots of flavour, fresh ingredients...

Came here as a group of 7 with my friends and boyfriend. We don't go out for meals much as a group because it's expensive, so we can't fault the great student deal these guys have! I can't remember the exact details but think we got poppadums & dips, any curry, pilau rice and naan for £10. Very impressed by... More
