We visited on a Saturday night. There was only one other table of guests in the restaurant. Service was painfully slow and inattentive despite the restaurant not being busy. We had to go searching for staff at one point when they had messed up our...More

Turned up with a group of 50 odd of us for the Buffet. Personally, I didn't mind the food too much, but the chicken Tikka would blow the socks off most. I like vindaloo's and Phal's, but even for me, this was a bit much....More

Had not been for several years. Restaurant is looking dingy now but from length of time we waited I guess food is freshly prepared per order. The bhindi bhaji was fab and chicken madras/lamb sag different but very enjoyable. Waitress very personable. Only downside -...More
