This is a typical one curry sauce for all occasions establishment. The madras curry sauce was exactly the same as the bhuna sauce (quite how? would escape even the most uninitiated of curry makers/eaters) and both were tasteless and non-descript.

The service was indifferent and largely protective of their inferior cuisine.

Would not recommend.

I am giving this a one star because there's nothing less.

Asaalam alaikum. (Hello)
We live in Sedbergh and have tried most Asian restaurants from Lancaster to Penrith and have found the India to be so consistantly good it is frightening.
It was very good before when called the Bengal but since the management became the owners it has stepped up a gear.
The chef and most of the staff are related and cannot do enough to help.

Service was friendly and helpful

Flavour of the food was outstanding and I think I know a bit about Indian cuisine.

Portion size was generous.

Have been back twice in one month
