“Always brilliant.”
Reviewed 7 February 2014 via mobile

We have eaten here many times and it is one of the best restaurants in Shrewsbury. The staff are always friendly and the food is great.

“Below average food”
Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

I have been here 3 times and each time it was to give them another chance but each time food has been very poor and service not of a standard other Indian restaurants achieve.

“Quality food, friendly staff, good but not great”
Reviewed 22 January 2014 via mobile

A large group of us visited for a birthday party mid week. As always the staff were friendly and great service. Food very tasty and great choice, only real down side is portions not huge, so accompaniments really can't be shared making the meal a little expensive. Will definitely use again, but at around £20 per head, little expensive as a regular curry haunt.

“Rich spicy and full of flavour”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

We went for lunch on a dreaded shopping trip. The location is just off one of the main streets and is quite ordinary inside, and the poppadums to start and wine were fairly plain, but my chicken tikka starter with all the fried onions we perfect, succulent and tasty, and then the mains arrived !

Possibly the richest and most flavoursome curry I've ever had, sauce clinging to the chicken, peppers and onions, every mouthful exploding with flavour. I had jal frezie, this and the chilli masala which my wife had were the only two dishes marked as "madras" compared with mild and medium. It wasn't too "spicy hot" but so full of flavour and roasted garlic even I didn't need it to be any hotter. And they made a paneer main course for my wife even though it wasn't on the menu.

I couldn't eat anything else all day, I could still taste the curry, so in a way, great value too. We can't wait to go back though. And they do lunch ! Overall though, the flavour would be hard to beat, anywhere!
