We used to live in the area so would visit quite a few times, but this was the first time we had been back for at least 5 years... And, 5 years ago I've got to say the food was better. At that time the Manager tried a new more sophisticated, more modern style of cooking, which seemed fresher and... More

Nailing my colours to the mast, I don't like this place. Having eaten here on and off over the years, I formed the impression that it was an ok Indian meal. However on my last visit, about eighteen months ago, I was served with some kind of meat in my veggie meal. When I told the manager he was most... More

Ordered a take away after an absence of over 2 year as the food was on a decline then, Decided to give them a try tonight - what a mistake!! Firstly the chicken dhansak which comes with pilau rice, had no pilau rice, then we discovered that the lamb balti we ordered was chicken balti. My husband phoned to complain... More

Bad. Average food with one good dish. Service in the restaurant was absolutely abysmal. The waiting staff seemed to be in pain serving.

My husband and I visit here often as we love the tasty flavours of the food. Most of the staff are warm and courteous and they show the right balance of attention without being overbearing.

A second visit with improved food. I was very satisfied with all of the dishes I ordered. The service was friendly and quite fun. Prices reasonable. The toilets are downstairs in the basement which may give access issues for some. I would happily return.

This place is absolutely fine! I don't know why it's got such mixed reviews on here. I've eaten in, and got takeaway plenty of times and it's always been great. The boiled egg in the biriyani is a lovely touch, and they contribute towards charitable causes in the east end.... including Leyton Orient FC. We had a memorable Christmas karaoke... More

I ate here twice this week. Doesn't look great from the outside, but was really friendly and the food was excellent. I ate early but it was filling with locals as I ate ( midweek) which is always a good sign.

I hadn't been here for a good few years and had forgotten the standard of cuisine. There was a large table 10+ people and I have to say be were looked after spectacularly. Endless amounts of poppadums' and chutney were supplied while we decided what to order. The food didn't take long to come to the table and tasted delicious,... More

Went for diner through taste card app and we were very very disappointed! To start the food was up to standard but we just got on with it and at the end we asked the bill and we thought we just wouldn't go again.we brought the taste card membership expecting for them to reduce the bill by 50% as clearly...
