Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We decided at very last minute to eat. Restaurant was just opening 5pm. Unsurprisingly we were the only customers so the lack of atmosphere was totally acceptable We enjoyed a memorably good food experience. Prawn puri starters. Roghan Josh,Chicken Muglai Biryani. All extremely good and...excellent service. Will definitely return perhaps at a busier timeMore

Very run down and cold venue the food was not very good and drinks were not to the standard that this restaurant used to be. I would not recommend this as a venue to visit and eat at due to its run down state. I...would not even order a takeaway from this venue due to the poor quality of food. This has really been let go by the owners this used to be a lovely local restaurant to visit with good food and atmosphere which is not the case now. What a shame.More

I had a full Tandoori chicken. Only problem was a chicken does not have 4 legs.. They didnt seem to get my joke. However it was nice but it took nearly 2 hours to get our food.

Not what i would call the best dining experience ive had infact i would call it one of the poorest, the actual eating area was on the lower floor or should i say more like a cellar with only afew tables which were very poorly...dressed. The actual food was below standard as the side dishes were totally dried out and reminded me of dried up cat food and the waiting time well it was worse than watching paint dry, i definately will not be returningMore

If you want low quality food in an unpleasant environment that’s also a 1 star for food hygiene then still avoid going here. Why would you eat in a restaurant that’s a 1 star for hygiene?

This is the first review I have ever left but felt compelled to write something because the food was that bad. This was a group of 8 people and every single one thought their food was terrible. I ordered a madras, not even close, absolutely...zero heat and tasted like a jar. The chicken was just about cooked but didn’t want to risk eating any further. The room we ate in stank of damp carpet which also didn’t help the experience. One colleague had duck and it was like leather. He’s a big lad and he struggled to cut through it. The portions of rice looked like they were the leftovers from someone else’s table. The naan was from a packet. I’m sorry I’ve had to write this but this really does have to be the worst food I’ve ever had in a “restaurant”. 100% I will not be backMore

I have dined here about 20 times in the last five years and it's always been reliable. I have never had a bad meal, always good. The service is friendly, welcoming and prompt. The menu is fairly typical of Indian restaurants these days, though I...think the prices are more reasonable. Also easy and free parkingMore

We haven’t been here for years and I’m not sure we’ll be back. It was a last minute booking over the phone with the impression being given that we could be squeezed in. However on arrival we were taken down to the “basement”, a large...uninspiring bare room with about 10 tables but only one other couple. Tables were all bare except for place mats and settings. Popadoms were served promptly and orders taken by a fairly unenthusiastic waiter who couldn’t really explain what was in one of the dishes. The food was served quickly but fairly uninspiring with the chicken rogon gosh in particular being very bland. Desserts were skipped, making it a quick and cheap evening. Such a pity as we hadn’t had an Indian meal for a while. We wish we’d checked the TA reviews beforehand. No return visit planned.More

First time visit to this restaurant, food was good, service was excellent BUT I'm not a snob by any means and I know it probably saves money but am not a fan of paper tablecloths when out to dinner. Also, decor in the upstairs restaurant...could do with a few pictures maybe, bit of colour. This however, did not detract from the tasty food and we all enjoyed our meals.More
