More of an upmarket café in Indian station style. Food delicious. Service very friendly - the staff really care. Great for lunch or evening meals (the afternoon teas looked interesting too but I haven't tried these).

The food at this place is really excellent - real depth of flavour and beautifully prepared. The quirky interior is great too, better than the more formal style of many Indian restaurants. My only quibble was the price - £13 is quite a bit for...More

We went here one Friday evening its a cosy place . We had poppadoms to start served with four tasty but very mild flavoured dips. Not you every day Indian , very subtle flavours . Portion sizes were moderate .

Atmosphere good, and attentive friendly service. A small menu, but that's fine as there was a sufficient choice. Friends' meals looked good. Mine (railway curry) wasn't. Just tasteless lamb with a nondescript brown sauce around it. Not very tasty, and expensive for what it was.
