We paid £2 for 2 poppadoms which is fair enough given it is a sit down meal. However we were charged £2.95 for the pickle tray!! To dip our popadoms in and then they took it away after which I have never seen before in...a restaurant. Waiters fast and friendly. Curries £12 each which I also thought a little dear as usually I pay £7-8 for a curry in a sit down meal. Food was nice however curry was 90% onions now I like onions but the amount of onions was just every mouthful crunching on onions not a lot of sauciness.More

The waiter managed to obtain a table for 2 although they were very busy. Staff on hand for recommendations and very attentive without being pushy. Decided to have the chicken naga which was amazing ( had it last night in my local takeaway but nowhere...near as good). Naan bread was beautiful.all washed down with a couple of ice cold cobras (on draught). I have been eating curry for over 35 years and is definately one of my top 5 meals. I need to go back!More

This was a fantastic visit - we was seated in a very cosy booth where the atmosphere was great - Curry & Sides were superb and service was friendly!

Went here tonight whilst down on business. Nice ambience and the food was very good, my only gripe was i felt rushed by a clearly stressed waiter. He got my drink order completely wrong but I couldn’t be bothered telling him.

Food was lovely, all coures and the service was first class. The manager came at the end of the meal and said he would like to buy us drinks, what a nice touch.

It was our first time in Derby. I booked the early bird menu, after reading the reviews, and we were not disappointed. Everyone in our party, thoroughly enjoyed their meal, everything was spot on! With the lovely food and great service, the atmosphere was buzzing!...We are already planning our next visit! :)More

Knowing that NYE is really busy, we pre-ordered a meal to be delivered at 8pm. We waiting until 8:30 before trying to call them but the line was constantly engaged and no one responded to our Facebook message. At 9:20 someone rang us to say...our delivery was going to be 20 minutes late, at which point we cancelled the order because it would have been delivered 2 hours late. Whilst I do appreciate it’s obviously a busy time, what is clear is that they’re not able to keep up with demand or facilitate a simple delivery service. A timely phone call to say they were struggling would have been all that was needed rather than waiting an hour and a half to be told it was still going to be further 20 minutes. I’m so angry with the terrible service of what should be a good restaurant, and a typical end to a crappy 2020!More

There is a free car park at the rear of the hotel but not many know about it.
