We met up with some friends here that recommended the place. We don't often go out for curry these days as we often find the veggie options a bit of a generic and non- descript mush. I'm pleased to report that wasn't my experience this evening. Starters were nice, I had samosas and Liz had vegetable puree. For main course... More

We visit this Indian very regularly, too regular some may say. This week the restaurant was so so busy you could barely get up the stairs to sit down as there were 2 large parties.

First impressions of this restaurant were not good as upon arriving the first thing I noticed was the dirty carpet going up the stairs, the stained seats around the table that we were allocated and paint missing and peeling from some of the walls . However things improved as the service was friendly and the food was nice. The Papadums... More

Visited here a couple of weeks ago for a friends birthday. Service was with a smile. The Tiger on tap was nice and cold and the food was OK. Myself and my wife opted for the Biryani, Peshwari Naan, Bombay Potatoes and Onion Bhaji. The Biryani wasn't the best I have ever had, was a little dry and the vegetable... More

the overall quality of food was good. Service is excellent. You must however know what to order. Bhunna Gosht was the star dish. Rest was average. I enjoyed a spotless white table cloth and the white cloth napkins.
