“Maybe we made the wrong choices”
Reviewed 20 November 2011

This is a take away restaurant with several tables for eating in. The décor is modern, pleasant and well laid out. It is not licensed but you can bring you own and the waiters are happy to open and provide glasses and there is no corkage charge. Another bonus is there is a small shop next store with a reasonable range of wines and beers if you need a refill. The starters were very good, we choose a mixed starter and they were all very tasty. My husband ordered a lamb biryani which was on the tough side of cooked and very bland. I choose the chicken shaslik which was not very good. The very few pieces of tandoori style chicken were rather dry and were accompanied by several whole onions that were burnt on the outside and raw and slimy on the inside as were the enormous pieces of tomatoes and peppers – it was certainly not like one I had eaten before. However, the prices were very reasonable and the staff friendly. It was also quite busy so we may have just made the wrong choices
