Great tasty food. The folks in the restaurant really make the effort to make you feel welcome and the food is always first class. We've visited a few times and the attention that they pay is always friendly and courteous.

excellent value for money - good food always very pleased with service and food. my husband does not eat a lot of spicy food but he is particularly fond of the chicken bhuna and the mild curry as this restaurant does cater for all tastes. we have taken friends and family and all have enjoyed it.

Having been on a Tuesday special night before and being satisfied we revisited on another night to try the usual menu. We arrived and service initially seemed ok, restaurant was chilly and it is clear that the heating is inadequate and sitting at a table near a radiator is important in the winter. After the poppadoms and the starter we... More

Called in with a few colleagues following an evening meeting. Given a warm welcome by friendly staff. The food and service was very good. A nice clean place, could be described as a bit clinical in decor but worth a visit, would use it again.

Had a couple of takeaways from here and had the same order both times (lamb tikka in a sauce). The first was delicious - tender lamb and a rich sauce. The second time was diabolical. The lamb (if it was that) was inedible, lumpy and chewy and the sauce tasted only of black pepper - nothing else.

The only restaurant I've ever been to where orders for main courses aren't taken until after you've finished your starters! Food was good quality, but nothing special. We were lucky to have a window seat, with beautiful panoramic views of a row of run-down shop fronts on the other side of the road!

Visit to the blue ocean today. The staff are excellent. They provide brilliant customer service, but not over the top. We had the set meal for two and could not fault any of the dishes. Probably the best indian food I've tasted. Definatly be visiting again soon.
