Visited early and was really impressed. Polite and friendly service, really good food...brinjal aubergines were ace! And a good hygiene rating too.... I won't eat in poorly rated place, would you? Would certainly return, and would recommend.

This has to be the worst Indian meal I have ever had. The food was bland totally lacking in any spicy flavour. The service was fine and the decor pleasant but sadly the food was a disaster.

We went here for the 1st time last night, I made the mistake of reading the Trip Advisor reviews first which kind of tainted by expectations. The restaurant is small and very clean, it’s warm and cosy, it can’t be faulted on that but the food was nothing special and in our opinion nothing that’s worth a second visit. I guess you could say it’s fairly expensive for what it is. I ordered the Garlic King Prawn to start. It came out on a big platter but I was shocked to see it was just ONE prawn! I paid £7.95 for 1 prawn. I like Garlic but this thing was swimming in the stuff, so much so my nose was burning. It comes with a little salad garnish and pan fried veg, all smothered in garlic oil which made it very overpowering. Mains were ok but the Jeera Chicken is quite tasteless, no real kick considering it’s supposed to be spicy. Our bill for 2 came to £50 which usually average for eating in at an Indian Restaurant but considering we only had 2 poppadoms, 1 starter, 2 curry dishes, 1 portion of rice, 2 chapati’s and 2 bottles of water you could say it’s pretty expensive for something that wasn't that great, nothing I couldn't of made at home anyway. The service was ok but they could have smiled, when we asked for 5 more minutes to look at the menu it seemed to be an inconvenience for them, I’m not sure why considering there were only 2 other tables occupied in the whole restaurant. Overall it was edible but nothing I’ll be travelling from Maidenhead to Marlow for again.

The food was good, as was the service. Portions were a bit on the small side. It isn't overly expensive, but it was relatively expensive for what we had.

I'm something of a regular here (normally for a weekday lunch) and I tend to eat the same things which I know will be good: last week a few dal pakora to start, which are always crispy and fresh-tasting and the lamb makhani washed down with a mango lassi which I know is always made fresh, because they can't do it when they're low on mangos!). The lamb they use is normally very tender, which comes down to what they're buying as much as how they cook it.

I notice in some of the other reviews people are bothered by the service - but its normal indian service to me - I look them in the eye and talk in a friendly way to them and dont have a problem. Anwar the bosses English is not perfect but he knows his menu and can give good advice. He is the right kind of person to be working in hospitality ,in my view.

If you want to get in there during the week, there's not normally a problem. but for weekends, you have to book ahead as it gets insanely busy.
