We gave this place a try on the first evening of our short break. Very disappointed. The predominant smell is of grease, better ventilation is needed. Menu is a dull version of other similar venues. Hard rice and a distinct "Cardboardy" taste to our starter...More

Just slightly different than the normal curry house, the menu has a few different dishes on its menu. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. We hope to return

Fabulous food that won't disappoint. The Lamb shank Vindaloo is a signature dish, not to be missed! Excellent starters too: Tiger shrimp in creamy Saffron is highly recommended. A great place for fine dining.

Probably my favourite Indian restaurant. There is so much flavour to the curries and the starters are pretty special too (try the spicy lamb 'Crusted Boti'). I've taken a few friends here too and they all agree that it's sublime.

Fantastic food, if we were local we would become regulars. Service was very friendly and were always keen to ensure everything was to our liking. Not your usual everyday menu but this added to the experience.

This place has friendly helpful staff, the ambience is nice but gets a bit noisy at times. Food nice but not "traditional Indian" as advertised.
