SPLENDID. From the moment I walked through the door I knew it was going to be good. The award for front of house by the door should have been a clue. After the popadoms alone I was enthusing with the proprietor and not a single...More

Visited with a colleague as a walk-in on Tuesday evening. Pleasant and attentive service. Clean and tidy surroundings, stylish but not too formal. Excellent food. Prices reasonable for location and venue. Would return.

Booked in based on reviews on TripAdvisor, well worth it. Have to say food has a twist on typical Indian food for example Ostrich for starters. Main course Goan Seafood really good. Not the cheapest meal but well worth it. Definitely return if in Nottingham.
