Another good meal, on this occasion we ordered from the £9.95 menu, which no longer includes a Popadom. It now includes two additional meals a Chicken Tikka Masala & a South Indian Murghi Balti which cost an extra £2.50. We had both of them and also Popadoms & chutney that we like, an extra £1.50 each! The Murghi Balti unfortunately... More

We have lovely meal. There was a little wait from the 8:30pm booking we had, finally seated about 9pm but they were busy. Overall the food was delicious and reasonably priced. We were also given and tour of the other dining options they have which was nice. We'll definitely be going again. Best Indian in the Chorley/Standish area IMO.

Four of us arrived to celebrate a birthday. A very warm welcome offered. We all decided to go for the 3 course £9.95 deal, although no longer poppadoms included. The restaurant has undergone a recent refurb, which has been very well done. Service was great, food presented well and tasted even better. Looking forward to my next visit

We have been coming to this restaurant for a couple of years and we have never had a bad meal. The food is always fantastic no matter what we order and the staff are very helpful and friendly. If you haven't yet been, you are missing out.
