We made an unplanned stop at the restaurant and we where extremely pleased that we had. I've not been to this restaurant for a very long time (about 8 years) and we extremely happy to say that the service was superb. The waiters where extremely welcoming and knowledgable about the dishes. They recommended some more interesting dishes than our usual favourites and we where so happy that they did. The food was the best Indian food I'd eaten in years, all four of us felt the same and we had a variety of meat and vegetarian dishes. The puddings menu also looked good but we where so stuffed with the mains and a jug of lassi (which I would highly recommend, it was the best I've ever had) that we couldn't of eaten another bite. We felt the price was spot on for the fantastic food and excellent service, we felt the waiters went above and beyond what was expected. We won't be eating Indian anywhere else locally from now on!

My partner and I have been here a few times, and every experience is even better than the previous one. Firstly, as you enter, the staff are ALWAYS very welcoming and friendly, and at least 3 waiters shook my hand, before showing us to our table. The food is out of this world - we try to order something new every time and have never been disappointed! We always end up asking ourselves we haven't we been there more often. We definitely you try this little gem near Matlock! We will definitely be back!

Totally random choice of restaurant during our stay in the area. However it was a wonderful experience. Great food and super friendly service. Would happily recommend to anyone... should they ever find themselves in or close to Matlock.

My husband and I went there couple of weeks ago whilst on holiday from Dubai (we used to live in the Matlock area). The food and service was amazing.

We had not been to this restaurant for almost 8 years , when my husband and I decided to go two weeks ago , we had a wonderful meal and my husband was offered a taster of the curry he had ordered prior to just being given the full portion I case it was too spicy what a lovely gesture . This restaurant was where our boys tried they're first curry over 8 years ago ! It's still a lovely place excellent food , best in the area , I'm about to book again !!
