The prices were also an absolute bargain. Not only was it cheaper than most Indian restaurants by a fair margin, but the deal that the restaurant runs on a Wednesday and Sunday was incredible. For £9.95 you get Papadums and the pickle tray, your choice of starter, main course, side dish and either rice or a naan bread. Unfortunately I visited on a Saturday, but my meal was still significantly cheaper than it would be in most other Indian restaurants
There were a wide range of choices on the menu and the restaurant served duck curries, which is not very common for Indian restaurants.
The customer service here was simply exceptional. I have dined in a number of Indian restaurants before, but the customer service here was above and beyond the rest. I arrived half an hour before opening time, but they let me sit down and eat anyway, instead of telling me to come back when they were open. I ordered a duck phall, which I requested be made hotter than usual, and a garlic naan.
As someone who with a high threshold for spicy food, I'm usually have to return the phalls, requesting that they be made hotter. However, as I don't like to be too much of a nuisance I don't request that they make it even hotter after they've spiced it up (unless it's significantly weak). When it was bought back I was asked if it was hot enough now. I said that I could take it hotter, but I was happy with it the way it was. The staff went above and beyond here, knowing that I would have liked it hotter, by taking it back to the kitchen and making it even spicier for me. The staff were also very friendly and engaged me in conversation at the end of my meal. I find that often in Indian restaurants the staff can be very quiet, even when you initiate conversation with them as I did today, so this was a very pleasant change.
The food was tasty enough although I found it to be too oily for my liking. However this was easily repaired by the staff when it was bought back from the kitchen.
