I've been coming here for years and yet to find a better establishment! The quality is top of the marks every visit and not forgetting the nicest staff you could ask for! Fully recommended.

My family and I visit this restaurant pretty much on a monthly basis. Aside from a lovely atmosphere and excellent food, the service is to a very high standard - staff are friendly and very attentive. It's my favourite Indian restaurant to date, and I would recommend it to anyone.

One of our favorite places. Staff are always friendly and eager to please, the younger waiter especially, nothing is too much trouble and the food is consistently very good. Service sometimes suffers a little when it's exceptionally busy.

Although we have been here on numerous occasions it's been quite a while since our last visit. The food and service was excellent as always along with friendly staff and lovely atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.

Me and my partner have been before when they have specials on Thursdays and Sundays and the quality is always fantastic. We sat inside and the waiters were so lovely and helpful, making the experience rememberable. Although the food is more expensive when it is not on those days, it is well worth the money!!

Staff were fantastic, timed service of different courses perfectly and perfect timing of drinks service. Very friendly but respectful of our space as well. Overall great value for the excellent quality of food and service, thoroughly recommend for a small group such as ours, a big group or just a couple for a meal out.

That time had come, when you know you have to find a new take away. First I think I spoke to the most polite person ever to place two Sunday specials. Never having been inside, what could be seen looked spotless. The proof though is in the eating and we were not disappointed. Both meals were excellent, well spiced and... More
