Visiting my friends in the Shropshire area we decided to go for an Indian meal, My friend suggested this place as they serve the naga chillies, I have quite an addiction to hot food.
The restaurant is situated on the side of a pub, very spacious inside and clean, We ordered the weekend special of 1 starter, 1 main course and rice / nan or other side dish, poppadums' to start, the cost per head was £ 10.95 each which I thought was good value, The starters came out which were onion bhajis and quite nice, then the main course came, I had the vegetable Khyber which I was told was a hot as a vindaloo, also ordered a jaflong sauce, both the curries were very nice and spiced well, the nan breads were alos good, however my friend had the chicken tikka masala, the curry was very sweet and bright red, My friend commented that the chicken did not taste fresh, at the end of the meal we were then presented with the bill, The cost was £ 56.00, As my meal was quite big I asked to take it home and they charged 50p per container, something I have never had to pay before, and as I asked for extra mint sauce when we had eaten all of it with the starter they charged £ 2.00,
Overall I am glad I went and I had very good food but the hidden extras on the bill left a distaste in my mouth, I just feel it let its self down.

My husband and I are regular customers and we are always warmly greeted by the friendly and professional staff. We usually eat in but tonight as I was on my own at home I decided to treat myself to a takeaway.
I was not disappointed. The lamb Pathia is very tasty, with just the right level of spiciness for me. One very happy customer.

Have eaten here several times over the last 18 months, always very good and very good value. As a family with children nice to find somewhere we all enjoy eating. Take aways are just as good as eating in. Highly recommended

Had a couple of sit downs here the food and service are second to none, have a take out delivered every weekend always on time and fresh, staff are friendly and always up for a bit of banter they travel from north birmingham every day, Mates at work also use this restaraunt and never had a bad meal.situated at the back of the Onslow pub so plenty of parking give it a go you will not be dissapointed
