“Mixed Feelings...”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

We've been using this restaurant since it first opened. The quality of food has steadily declined over time and although we still go for meals for birthdays, anniversaries etc. the atmosphere is less "pleasant" than it used to be.

We still have a takeaway once or twice a fortnight but the chicken (breast) quality is becoming quite "fatty" and not the sort of chicken breast I want to eat. We've enquired about the chicken breast quality before (as I don't believe some of it is actuallty breast at all), but we've been told that they only use chicken breast and no other parts of the chicken.

It is such a shame because when this restaurant and takeaway opened it was the best indian food I had ever had in many years of eating indian curries. Alas! Nothing stays the same, unfortunately.

“Easily the best curry around!”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

I have been to this restaurant so many times with friends and family but always forget to write a review, but it's about time I did because it deserves a good one!
The food is always excellent, I would particularly recommend the chicken chaat, one of the tastiest things I've ever had in any restaurant, I sometimes order it as a main course due to its amazing taste!
The £12 special is very good value as well, as long as you get there before 7pm Sunday to Thursday. As mentioned before, I have been many times and will continue to visit regularly in the future, delicious!
