My fiancée took me here for my 30th birthday and I was not disappointed. The service was great and the food was lovely. I ordered a lamb tikka madras with keema naan & popadom, it was the best madras I've ever had.

We agree that the premises of this unusual Indian restaurant are quite something and the food certainly a step up for the area, but we were not happy with the speed of service. We waited ages to have our order taken and had to prompt...More
