“Brilliant host, he should be a comedian!”
Reviewed 26 September 2011

Hidden away in Radford, Coventry is this gem of a cosy little restaurant. The award winning chef and owner Iqbal is so hilarious he should be on the stage! The food is beautifully aromatic and if you are not sure what to choose all you need to do is ask Icky and he will recommend something especially for your palate.

We have been numerous times over the past few years and always gone home pleased with the delicious culinary delights of the evening and a full tummy.

My only negative comment would be the crazy, and I mean crazy paving on the walls, but we have such a lovely time every time we visit that I usually don't notice the walls anyway!

Keep up the good work guys.

“Great little place!”
Reviewed 20 July 2011

Have been here numerous times, it's one of my favourite places to eat in Coventry.

The food has always been superb and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Last time we went was for my birthday in June, and we had a lovely evening. We had the pleasure of having the manager Icky waiting our table and he had us laughing all night - A real character!

If I had to make one critiscm it would be the decor - it's a little old fashioned by contemporary standards and a lick of paint is needed here or there, but please be assured that this would not ruin your enjoyment of this great little place. Highly recommended.
