Being an asian, I know what asian food should taste like, this place is rubbish, the starter was okay, we ordered fish and chicken pakoras and it tasted alright but for main we ordered garlic chicken and chicken tika curry, the food was blend and cold, the naans were thick and we were given no salad no sauce. It was hard to believe they were charging so much for such a rubbish food and service. Don't think I'll ever go back there again.

Stopped in here before going to the Tattoo and have to say, what a meal.

We had the set menu and it certainly was a food challenge - each dish was fresh, tasty and filling and the Naan bread was the biggest I have ever seen!

Service was great - friendly staff who were genuinely interested in where we came from and if we were enjoying not just the food but also the city - great!

Recommended for anyone needing a hefty dinner before going to a show. Will be back when in town next time.

I just took a take away from them, I am eating a vegetarian curry with rice right now, wonderful! I was in hurry because I am working. They were very busy so I guess it is better to book for a sit in!
