We arrived a little early and was asked to wait by the bar so as the waiters who were dressed in a sort of uniform but looked very smart none theless could relay the table, when we sat down the service was upto standard and drinks and popadoms and relishes arrived very prompt, the starters arrived fairly rapidly, the rest of the evening went very well and we felt that our custom was appreciated and we left on a good feeling and would recomend this restaurant to anyone

We booked with two days in advance. I have been asked to phone 1 hour before we were going to confirm the exact number of people. I did it. When we arrive our table wasn't ready and 16 people have to wait at the bar. The table they arrange was very small. We couldn't fit. I will not recommend for large group and work related dinner! Cafe Naz, nearby it is more appropriate!

Always great food, very quick service and food turn around, not ideal for romantic meal, more a quick dinner when you can't be bothered to cook!!!!

One of the best Indian restaurant in Cambridge. Not sure why it has got many bad reviews. Maybe it is due to the bad service? The food on the other hand is good. In particular, the lamb Bhuna is fantastic. Some of the chicken dishes are also very good, the chicken is tender and just nicely cook and not over cooked like in some other Indian restaurants. We have been to this restaurant many times and most of the time the food is good (one or twice the food was below par, perhaps the main chef was on vacation?). The environment however is not so comfortable as the place is cramped and tables are small. For the service, I have to agree with the other reviews though, but if you are up for good Indian food, I suggest you give it a try!

I have been going to Cambridge for quite many years now. Each time we went to this restaurant. But we will never go again ! We had booked for 6 people and got to the restaurant at around 8h30. First there were problems with the orders and I did not get what I had ordered. At around 10h15 the waiter told us they were closing at 11H. We ordered our sweets and one of us asked for tea. We were told we could only have coffee as the cook was already cleaning the kitchen and would refuse to boil water ! We got served and at around 10h30 we were asked to leave the place. To our surprise the cleaning staff was there, spreading a product (desinfectant) on the carpet ! And this before we had even left the place !

These people have no considerations for clients ! I believe they have a reputation now and they no longer care whether the customers are comfortable or not ! A real shame !
