I ate here one evening recently with a business colleague and we really enjoyed our meals (I had samosa and poppadoms to start, followed by chicken madras, boiled rice and naan bread). Service is friendly and efficient. I like the layout of the place. It has a good atmosphere.

Really enjoyable curry, friendly service on what turned out to be a very busy Friday evening, but based on my dishes I can see why this restaurant is popular, definitely recommended if you are looking for a curry in Melton Mowbray.

Ordered Stella brought cobra no apology. Route to toilet dirty carpet worn walls filthy. Food just OK. Would love someone from restaurant to... More

Make sure you book for this place at the weekend. When we arrived (7:30 on a Saturday) it was absolutely heaving, and they certainly know how to cram people in. Having said that, we had booked, and we got a perfectly comfortable table for six of us. The food is everything you might expect from a good local Indian, plus... More

If you want a great tasty take away and plenty of it this is the place. Doesn't take long to pick up an order and always friendly helpful staff on telephone and collection.
