Seemed nice and friendly and a good service. But the food was so so. Our bill was soo expensive and totally wasn’t worth it. My main was £15!!!! Yet said on the menu £8. Won’t be coming back unfortunately.

Some splendour once born live through ages, Time cannot dim their glory nor distance their memoryFew countries can match the sheer variety of Indian cuisine in proportion and regional variations.One moment you may experience a rare 7th century wonder, the next the 14th century concoction of considerable charm of the old counting houseUsing specialist ingredients from rare spices and avoiding artificial colouring and flavours, and allowing the original colours to be self-extracted from the ingredients itselfOur menu combines earthly traditional Indian flavours with cutting edge styleDigging deep into India’s culinary culture, we have revived succulent fare worthy of a NAWAB’S taste buds, a repast worthy enough to appease the appetite of the MUGHAL MONARCH
