Friendly staff, excellent service. Hadn't booked but managed to get a table after a few minutes wait. Food and service were excellent and very reasonable. Would return if back in Chester. Thanks for a lovely evening. Sally & Linda

Decent service but the food is sadly not very nice. It looks like they're using sub par meat and prawns and the sauce is sub par as well. Avoid

About a 5 minute walk from the centre of town but well worth it. The restaurant is small so you might be advised to book ahead. We arrived about 6.30 and luckily got the last table so we didn't have to wait. We ordered our meals and they came very quickly, we started with the special mixed kebab, which was... More

Came here on the off chance and was given a table immediately even though it was quite full. The menu is plentiful and the food was great the waiter's were more than willing to help you choose your meal I asked about a few dishes and they were very helpful in explaining what was in the curry and how hot...

Could not get an early table but it was worth the wait. Three couples six different meals and no complaints from anyone. Good service, food out quickly (we were starving). Will visit again next year.

We were in Chester for a stag weekend, and we called in Saturday evening for a meal. The restaurant was clean and comfortable, and the service was excellent. The food was delicious, and well presented. The lamb curry I had was as good a curry as I have had for a long time.

Me and my hubby ordered two different Curries both chicken tikka meat but neither were tikka meat the Chicken looked like it had been sliced from a joint of chicken as they were all the same shape not tikka pieces but there was lots of it. Curry sauce bland supposed to be medium but very mild. Service quick.
