Ordered food from here and it was greasy and tasteless. I'm quite shocked, considering the price point. I don't know if the food was microwaved or not, but the chicken was really hard and dry. All round quite unpleasant. It was the first time I...More

This little gem of a place is our regular Indian eatery now and has been since lockdown. We used to go to another curry house in the city centre, but here the food is excellent consistently and so is the service, so why go anywhere...More

I came here a few years ago when I was working an event at Goodwood, and it was absolutely wonderful. They put up with us rocking up as a 20-top, having only booked a couple hours in advance and the food and service was fabulous....More

We ate here but were disappointed at the temperature of the dishes. When we mentioned this to the waiter, it would appear to be due to 'health & safety' issues (the council/insurers have banned the food warmers) However, hot plates for the food to go...More

We had a lovely meal, the service was good and the food warm. What’s lacking is the atmosphere, I can’t put my finger on what’s wrong with the atmosphere, I will say that one of the waiters was a little curt, but overall it was...More

Ate here tonight with the family (including 2 children) after we walked past the restaurant last night and we exclaimed how nice it looked. We weren’t disappointed and enjoyed it very much. Excellent staff too.

This is my first visit, but certainly will not be the last. Ordered a takeaway on a recommendation from a friend as our usual would be India Gate. I'm so pleased we gave it a go. Not only was the food piping hot when I'd...More
