Visited here for a curry, and found the place to be excellent. I wanted a chilli nan, which wasn't on the menu. The waiter quickly asked the chefs, and I was told they would make me one. Excellent. Rest of the meal was superb. I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

If you like it hot than this is for you. Excellent Asian food served with Pakistani spice. I enjoyed everything and the service was great. Huge attention to detail. naan bread was garlic buttered. Very busy but well managed. Do yourself a favour. Have a go.

Went on a Tuesday night with friends just after 8pm, had to wait for a table, fine no problem. Just wanted a curry, rice and naan. Friend told they had ran out of boiled rice!

The décor was nice and the room bright and airy. However, the floor underneath our table was littered with food. There were lots of other tables we could have been sat at. The food was ok but nothing special. Service was not great. We were not asked if we wanted water or more drinks. One of the waiters was using... More
