“Lovely Meal with Friendly Staff”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We went to this restaurant as a result of a Wowcher offer. Parking is available close by in a couple of places but you have to pay as it's in the town centre and all roads are yellow lined. Despite this we had an enjoyable evening.

There were a number of other people taking advantage of the Wowcher offer as well as a few returning customers, which gave us confidence that it would be a good meal. The staff were friendly and offered advice about what to choose and we were very happy with the suggestions, some of which we took up. For lager drinkers there is only one lager available but it seemed ok, as my husband was quite happy with it. There is a good choice of meals on the menu and the food was well cooked and presented well.

We had attentive, friendly staff but they did not outstay their welcome at the table. The restaurant was very nicely decorated and colour co-ordination was good and restful.

All in all a very good meal and we would return again with or without a discount available.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

We absolutely love this place! We come here every Sunday unashamedly.

The food is fresh and tasty and the service is fantastic - so much so that we recently asked them to provide us with some BBQ supplies (which they duly obliged) and the chicken tikka and scallops went down a storm!

Go an see Dilawar and his staff, you won't be disappointed!
