As visiting the area rung on the off chance they had a table available. So glad they did. We had a lovely meal. It was well presented and tasted amazing. The service and staff were excellent. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

My husband and I used to visit this restaurant 7 years ago and loved it. We last came back 2 years ago and the food was still good but upon our latest visit yesterday we wouldn't ever go back. The food had no taste and seemed old. The samosas weren't freshly cooked and the peas were a dark/old green colour.... More

Before I rate the food I do want to say that the staff were excellent and very attentive and friendly! However the food was not quite so good! We agree with another reviewer that the pickles were disappointing especially the mint yogurt. I have a Malayan pineapple and Lychee Chicken Biriani. To be completely honest it was really very bland... More

I just thought Samosas in filo pastry? I don't think so. They were o.k. just weird. I just found that all the dishes tasted the same. they were creamy, I had fish Bhuna but rather flavourless. The Onion Bhaji were tasty. Egg rice was good but not much spices/herbs used. Waiters were polite and surroundings o.k. but I've had better.
