I always promise Ali I'll write a review after my visit, only because the food and service is always excellent and my mum and dad are treated like royalty. Means alot that they're looked after so well. We opted for the 9.95 early bird menu and wasn't disappointed. The quality was excellent as usual and the portion sizes were great... More

Special menu 10.00 for 2 courses. .. very good value. Wide choice of curries. Lovely views and ideally positioned for the canal and local station. I personally wasn't keen on the onion bharji as they were small and powdery. The king prawn chilli was lovely and spicy, cooked butterfly style which I prefer.

As a family of five, with three rather fussy children, it is always challenging to find a restaurant that we all like - especially when it is for ethnic foods. However, we recently visited this restaurant and were very please with the experience. Even my fussy kids found things they could eat (including one portion of chicken nuggets!). It was... More

The staff at this restaurant were extremely kind, doing whatever they could to make your evening more enjoyable. The food was delicious too - been twice so far and will happily go again.

Situated in a beautiful waterside location. A large selection of Indian cuisine available covering all palate's (including vegetarian options). Very friendly and professional service provided by staff. Ideal for larger groups and parties. Well worth a visit.

Well worth a visit to this canal-side Indian restaurant, foods well priced and incredibly prepared. I found the staff to be very obliging and served the food with a smile and their hospitality is second to none... Simply put I found it to be a great eatery, managed by superb staff.

A converted pub with no Indian style lager/beer but a choice of Nitro Fizz. Cloth napkins are positive, out weighed though by the lack of attention to the toilets. Cloned Gaffs tape to repair cracks in the toilet is never attractive, though front of house is well presented. A limited menu though some apparently nicely described dishes. Two of the... More

Been for a meal with work this evening to celebrate 2 special birthdays. The staff really looked after us. There is an extensive menu. They do an early bird special deal for £10.95 which is amazing value. I had a chicken chat starter and lamb tikka massalla with pilau rice. Both were absolutely delicious. Everyone enjoyed their various meals. Would... More

Food is ok, nothing special, service was a big let down, we got our starter before the popadoms, food is nothing to right home about . Our first and last visit, shame really. Don't believe the hype!
