We've been here many times over the years but last time we came I felt standards had slipped . We wanted to come back in the hope that it was a blip and it certainly was. We had fabulous service and the food was outstanding . So pleased we returned .

We visited early on a Thursday evening a family group of 6 incl our 2 year old granddaughter. We all ordered different meals which were very tasty not too spicy. God for the three chilli or ask if you like a hotter curry. A little more expensive than others around but well worth it.

Last minute decision to go here, welcomed and although early in the evening, there were a few people in and it filled up quite quickly. Service fine, menu extensive, food great, I mean really great, I cant remember eating such a decent curry. Price was pretty good, approaching the top end for curry houses, but worth every single penny No... More

Lovely food and great service. A little more expensive than usual Indian takeaways but the quality of the food and service is far superior to any of its rivals in Swindon. Recommend. Thanks

I ordered takeaway from this restaurant and half way through my vegetable passanda I took a bite of what I thought was potato but turned out to be a large piece of chicken. I contacted the restaurant to ask for a full refund, enclosing a photo of the chicken, and heard nothing. Not even an apology. Very disappointed with their... More

Here are some dishes served to perfection 1. Tandoori chicken 2. Lamb adhraki (moderate spice) 3. Lamb kadhai (spicy) None of the above dishes was overpowered with spice. Everything was... More

We were rather disappointed as it had a 5star rating. The quality of the food was good but we had zero spice! My son asked for a Madras and there was no heat at all The combination of spices were totally lacking.It was totally bland!, The waiters were miserable and didn't really want to serve!

This is a lovely restaurant, light and airy, clean and welcoming. We hadn't visited before but our friends had and we found the service to be friendly but not pushy so we were able to enjoy our meal and have a long chat afterwards without feeling that they wanted shot of us. We ordered Chicken Balti which came with a... More
