A very good quality Indian Restaurant spoiled by slow service. This restaurant will take your order, deliver you drinks and leave you hours to wait for your food. It seems they are more interested in serving drinks than getting food onto the table.

Really bad service. Waited 2 hrs for food and left in the end after only having had our starters. Three other tables in a similar position walked out. The food is good but the service is awful. On the whole best avoided...head for the smaller curry house next door.

Only go here if you have several years to kill before you eat. And go with a full stomach because by the time you do actually get to eat, you'll be hungry. Food is okay.

When you order Mutter Panir, and the restaurant delivers something the consistency of thick dal with peas , no discernible cheese and calls it "cheesy peasy" you know you are in trouble. And we were. The chicken shashlik was spread over the plate and frankly was awful. If you can't get in the Indian next door go and have a... More

Our first visit and not our last. The restaurant had been recommended by other family members and it did not disappoint. Very nice presentation and really tasty food in a nice atmosphere with friendly helpful staff.. Easy wheelchair access.

Everyone could here everyone's else's conversations :( Service bit slow, waiter forgot our drinks twice. Waiting staff are good, but not very friendly the lady behind the bar taking payment was damn right miserable. Food however was... More

Been here twice and can honestly say I'd never be returning. We waited over 1 for food the table next to us waited 2 hours. SOME of the Staff were rude and kept saying speak to management not my fault. Very unprofessional when asked about the long wait. Food was ok, but the long wait for food just puts us... More
