Six of us had an excellent meal. Food was wonderful and a good range of drinks were available, including spirits. It is easy to get carried away and order everything on the menu.

We have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions. I can only say that it continues to be the best indian I have had in the UK. Menu is different, inventive and the quality of the food is fantastic. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

I cannot wait to return to try out more dishes. Saag Gosht- beautiful succulent lamb in a gorgeous spinach sauce - NOT the usual green spinach dish, Chicken Kadai- beautiful chunks of... More

Saw this place on trip advisor and looked up the menu and it was refreshing to see something different on a curry menu , not the run of mill tikka/jalfrezi/vindaloo etc We all ordered something different and it all tasted very good with some really lovely flavours and it wasn't greasy but we just thought we could have done with...

I rang the restaurant last week to book a table for 4 for my husband's birthday. The answer phone message said to visit the website to book. So I went to the website and the "request a table" page and selected a table for 4 for Sunday 19 March at 7.30pm. There was no suggestion when I completed this request... More

Wow, this place is fabulous. We had been told of many locals that this place is definitely worth a try and boy are we glad we listened. The staff are some of the nicest staff you could meet, very attentive to all who were dining and it was almost a full house on Friday evening. This place offers an alternative... More
