we had a take away which was develivered within 45 mins as promised, at peak time on a sat night. it was expensive, if not for this would have given it 5 stars but it was so so nice. its nice to have the extra choice of dishes. we have had so many disappointing indian takeaways over the last two years we have really cut down on them, but i cant wait to order from here again.

Unbelievably bad. I can only suggest that the self promoting proprietor spends some time in the kitchen. My 'special' mixed grill was a sorry heap of gristle, fat and bone and of such a horrifying shade of red that only an alchemist could have created it!

Abdul really works hard to tailor make an exceptional meal for his diners,the portions are generous and well presented and he is expert in putting courses together which complement each other. The descriptions in the menu are very clear and form a good basis for Abdul to elaborate each dish to his customers taste,he really wants people to enjoy his food and does not cut any corners either in quality or quantity. In a nutshell a first class Indian restaurant.

Visited here on Saturday evening and chose this restaurant due to it's good reviews. My partner and I were not disappointed. The menu is extensive offering a wider choice of dishes to any other Indian restaurant we have visited, food is excellent and service is outstanding. We chose Abdul's Goat Special and Jeera Venison Special which were both cooked to perfection. The prices are slightly more expensive than your average Indian restaurant but well worth paying extra for. We would highly recommend anyone to give this restaurant a try. We will be returning here in the near future.
