After hearing good things about this restaurant I decided to try there for a birthday meal. On first impressions the bar and restaurant area were nicely decorated and we were seated quickly. Straight away I found it very cold.The menu is confused with a large Indian section and a very limited grill section. I wonder why they even bother with the grill menu as it is so small. We then asked the waiter to explain what the lamb kofta was to which he replied 'I actually have no idea' - to which i then had to explain to my friend what it was. We ordered the sharing platter to start which was bland, luke-warm and very average. It wasn't even as good as pakora that you would get from a good take-away. For my main i ordered the fish & chips which was ok and my boyfriend ordered the 'steak' burger. The burger was definitely not steak and the bun was stale and fell apart when he started eating it. For dessert I asked what the cheescake was and again the waiting staff did not know. I opted for a hot chocolate which again was luke-warm and tasted like cadbury's drinking chocolate. Definitely will not be back and would not recommend this.

Nice decor, but really cold to sit in bar during winter. Had a few bar snacks, but on three occasions the pakora and onion rings were swimming in grease and not very nice at all.
Have only eaten in restaurant once and meal was pleasant enough, but not really very
spicy. Staff very friendly. Really just go for a drink only and not for a meal or snack.

Have had a lot of takeaways from here and eaten in restaurant at least 7-8 times. Never a bad dish. Tandoori Salmon, Monkfish and Chicken Tikka are all standouts. Sister needs gluten free and this was no problem (they have two gluten free pakoras, etc.) and staff and owners could not be more helpful. Would highly recommend.

Had hoped for a quick 2-4-1 at Prezzo on a Sunday but when we were told the kitchen closed half an hour ago, despite their website suggesting otherwise we headed back up the road for an unexpected but as always very enjoyable mixed pakora & curry evening instead. We have been at least half a dozen times and the food is so much fresher and lighter than what is offered by many other local Indian restaurants, not a huge fan of pile it high cheap & cheerful Indian buffets & restaurants like this make me realise why, as the food is so much nicer.

Been here a few times now and always been really good. Food and service is excellent. Have sampled both the Indian and grill menus and are equally good. After or before your meal you can sit and relax and have a drink in the lounge bar. Would highly recommend. Prices are very reasonable.
