Delicious, delicately spiced meal in a comfortable modern restaurant. Had the £14.95 two course option which was very good value for money. Worth the short walk from the city centre and would definitely come here again when we next visit.

Delicious indian food in a modern atmosphere. The owner, Suki, and staff are very friendly and took great care of us. If you like spicy food, I would recommend Lamb Keema Peas.

The food was well cooked. I liked the Roti and Daal Tadka. The staff was friendly. The curry were made fresh. Enjoyed the bollywood posters on the walls. Had a good time there. Highly recommended!

I went in not expecting anything authentic or good - but, had the best chicken dalfrezi (with a great ban) I have EVER had. Great, friendly service and ambience to boot. With a large glass of delicious White Zinfandel, the bill came to just over £18 (sans well deserved tip). Highly recommended.

Dear Reviewer, thank you for taking a little time out to write your review. At times our food does take a little longer, however, this is normal for a busy evening - as our meals are cooked from scratch, after you have placed your order. More

Unprofessional on the phone when questioned about missing and delayed deliveries. Basically told it'll be there when it's there. Food ok but unreliable delivery system in place.

Staying up for the weekend friends recommended this place. Great menu and guest class service from staff who were all very friendly and welcoming. The four of us all had different starters and mains and all agreed they were very good in both quality and quantity. No problem recommending and if we're in the area again will certainly be back
