trying to be too many things to too many people and consequently gets muddled - I tried confit de canard, which was basically cooked like a simple chicken casserole, nothing like the real thing. My companions complained similarly about their dishes. Also very pretentious - this is a restaurant that takes pride in itself a little too far, the atmosphere is positively oozing with snobbery and a sense of its own superiority (a bit like the Promenade in the old days). Won't be going back in spite of all the plaudits its earned.

Really enjoyed the food, Indian with a twist. Goan cod curry was excellent. Watch out for the price of the drinks though. Would definitely try it again, but would rather go mid week when a bit quieter, as Saturday night was packed.

I went there with my girlfriend to celebrate birthday. We went there with few excitement and to have good time with good food. When we went there we were given nice table and good service at first. when it started to get busy. they didn't even care towards us. we wanted more drink and few papdoms. After long wait we get food but we didn't find the taste of our expectations. we are regular curry eater but not satisfied. Other things were all right but bit expensive.
overall not bad.

We had a bottle of wine, 2 starters, 2 mains and shared a dessert. Came to £70 which for £35 a head doesn't seem too bad, but for what you got in terms of portions it could have been slightly cheaper. However the service made up for it. They were quick in offering to refill our glasses and effecient at clearing the table. Food was very nice. Will visit again.

Not your average curry. You can taste the individual flavours of each dish which really do shine through and have an obvious freshness about it. Clearly well prepare and clear knowledge from the chef and staff make this place a must for that extra special Curry.
