Service was extremely slow - arrived at 8,20pm popadom and pickles came at 9.00am, main course arrived at 9.45 - 2 pints of cobra later! Food not even worth the wait! Won’t be bothering again as the service was the same last visit

The food was really nice. I had a lamb shatkora, which is a Bangladeshi speciality I will order whenever it's available. I found the service a little slow, but as it was way busier than I was expecting for a Tuesday evening, I am willing...to give them a pass on this. Two different draught lagers available, which is good forMore

As the title says, this is definitely the best Indian food I’ve tasted this year. The service at times was a little slow, but that’s to be expected when they’re busy and food is cooked fresh to order. Friendly staff, attentive and willing to make...our stay the best it possibly could be. Food was delicious, drink selection was excellent, will definitely return whenever in the area! Thanks againMore

New Year’s Eve I ordered in plenty of time for a seven thirty collection .... on arriving at the appropriate time I was told the wait would be an hour to an hour and a half as they had not even started to cook it....... by the number of people inside and outside my guess would be that they just take orders and worry about the logistics afterwards .......... but it was NYE so I expected a wait of about 10 minutes but their attitude was awful ...... I walked out and went home empty handed !!! so being a glutton for punishment, and as my family love the food there, I thought I’d give them another chance tonight .... so booked for a seven pm collection and guess what same situation ... waited 45 minutes this time ...... trying to support local businesses in these trying Covid times but it’s not as if they are doing anything to help themselves or consumers.... despite the good food I will not be bitten a third time !!More

Ordered a takeaway and arrived at the correct time to collect. Waited a further 20 minutes for the order to be ready! The food was lovely but was marred by the wait. As I walked in a customer who was leaving said I would have...a long wait - they were not wrongMore

Ordered a take away which consisted of a Lamb Madras with Keema rice, jhinga Jalfrezi, a chicken Biryani, poppadum’s, a cheese and chilli naan and a plain naan. I turned up at allotted time and paid, then proceeded to wait another 15 mins for them...to "finalize" my order? Shop was not busy 1 customer before me and 1 after. When the food was unpacked it was of average quality, and some had to be reheated. The chicken (Biryani) was dry and half was left over as inedible. The Madras was uninspiring and the meat average quality The Jalfrezi was average, lacking any original spice and tasting more of “off the shelf” curry powder, the prawns had been cut down and were of average quality. On a plus note, the poppadum’s were ok. As a family we really enjoy our curries and recognize a good dish when its presented....this was way down the scale from good. It’s a shame, as many reviews seem to praise the establishment highly….maybe it’s a lockdown thing.More

Went here as part of the eat out to help out scheme, food was absolutely delicious, restaurant was very busy but couldn’t fault the staff! I have an intolerance to milk and I said this to the manager and he knew exactly what I could...and couldn’t eat, most places have to speak to the chef but he knew everything! Will definitely be going back!More
