Just had a very nice meal with my girlfriend and her father - all the food was very tasty and the quality of the chicken in our curries was great - succulent. The service was friendly, especially the manager Shohel. No doubt we'll dine there again - great for a good standard range of Indian food.

Called in on our way home one summer evening with my wife and 19 year old daughter (dad's treat). Staff were dismissive, like they're doing me a favour. Sat down quickly and order taken in good time. I like my food spicy and ordered a hot dish and asked for it extra hot. Settled down with a bottle of red... More

I recommend everyone to exercise caution over the positive reviews, many of which seem coerced and plenty I'm sure are fake! While the staff tried to pressure us to submit a glowing trip adviser review, they did nothing to earn one! Our cutlery was thrown on the table for us to lay out. Napkins were either dropped on people from... More

Had a nice quite meal, yhe wine was of a good price/quality we had some fish cooked in a marinated spice sauce, the sea bass was perfectly cooked, after we shared a spicy dish that it was hot enough for you to taste all the rich flavours of the meat. Will go back

Visiting York and passing this restaurant and it was quite busy so we popped in for dinner. Shown to a table for two by a very polite young man and ordered drinks while we perused the menu. My better half enjoyed her meal (prawns) but I thought mine disappointing. I'd like to say I'm a little boring with food, I... More

Went here on a recent trip to York. If we lived locally would go all the time. Our waiter Shoel was an absolute delight. The food was outstanding and the service was friendly and welcoming. I recommend the garlic naan bread and the shaslick. Go!!!

This small restaurant offers a great selection of Indian cuisine at sensible prices. Voted Best Restaurant of the Year in Yorkshire & England 2016! Friendly service and in a picturesque location in the heart of the old city! Please note that only holders of Disabled Blue badges can park outside but there are several car parks nearby! Well worth a... More
