First time to this place, ordered a mixed kebab style starter which was poor in portion size for the price. Biryanis were plentiful but good have had a bit more spice to them. Average but starters need improvement

Not many good take away currys in the west end but this one is very solid. It's my go-to delivery. Balti is great!

Very friendly staff, food is amazing. I have tried a Chicken Tikka Karai with Pilau Rice and Garlic Naan bread. This was simply amazing, very tasty. My friend tried Sag Aloo which was very nice.

I have just eaten a terrific take away lunch from here, it was freshly cooked and prepared and the manager's home made mango chutney was sublime. Adela D may have struggled as this emphatically does not taste like standard high st Indian food, it's miles better. Full of flavour with fresh herbs, chillies and tomatoes I can only say 'outstanding'!

I ordered from this restaurant terrible is not the word. The ambience is like a dead house. Dirty restaurant the kitchen looks like it has bugs. To add the customer service is horrific they dont understand you. The food is cheap and even a supermarket food is better!! Avoid at al costs!!

This restaurant has gone through a complete refurbishment and looks completely different. We re-opened in November 2016. We have an award-winning chef. Excellent food. Please visit us again you will not be disappointed. More

We have been waiting for food for 50minutes. I have to say that it wasn't a Indian taste at all. 😵 BIG disappoint. Never again

Stumbled upon this place when looking for a curry last minute. We've done this a few times and always been disappointed. Not this time though - genuinely one of the best curries I've had. Tasted really fresh and and full of flavour. Definitely worth a try

I am a regular customer but this time ordered via 'curriesonline'. I'll call directly next time as I don't see the point of a middleman. I had to call to ensure my chicken tikka masala was madras hot. Food was very tasty. The bread was a bit cold and I would like to see some slight garnish of coriander on... More

I enjoyed my food but I found the portions a bit small. I'm from up north and I want more for my money. Still, nice prawns, nice salad, and pretty ok naan.

Its an ok restaurant, came here alone and was quickly recieved. The waiter was incredibly nice and gentle and we chatted a lot. Still, the dishes took very long to come out, and no sides at all. I had to order rice separately, and that added another £2,50 to the price of my meal.

Thank Ricardo Z
