“One of the best”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Visited on Easter Monday, drinks order taken quickly and served within reasonable time. Food order taken within reasonable time, and starters delivered quickly, but such a long wait for the mains, the staff did apologise, but I see from other reviews this may be a regular occurrence.
Don't let this put you off trying the place. It was one of the best Indian meals that I have ever had, the portion size was good, with lots of meat and/veg, nice thick sauces, more importantly the taste was fabulous. A few different dishes than the usual restaurants, so it was nice to try a couple of new dishes. All very reasonably priced.
The staff were really friendly and welcoming, and I look forward to making a return visit.

“More than a resstaurant”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

The new tapas food here is great but this is more than a restaurant: Live music (real live bands) on Friday Night (and bank holiday Sundays) and DJs on Saturdays. The most sophisticated night spot in Dunstable with a lower age limit of 25 or 30 depending what night you go.

“Very nice food”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 via mobile

Popped in whilst visiting the area. Food was good, abit too much on a plate for me to handle. We were the only customers at 6pm on a Saturday, however it was full at 7pm. Waiters were very polite, but I can see where some of the comments come from about their speed. We were in no rush though so this didn't matter. Would go again 4/5

“Great food slow service”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

Me and the girlfriend have eaten here a few times it's round the corner from my house it's a lovely place and looks great inside the food is excellent and never had a problem with it the only thing that let's this place down is the service we were seated fairly quick but look the waiter 20 mins to give us some menus and take our drink orders and another 30 mins to take our food order normally I wouldn't really mind but there was only 3 small tables at the time and plenty of staff but other than the service u would highly recommend this place

“Sunday Lunch Buffet...”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

Arrived last Sunday for lunch buffet... So here's the review... We were promptly shown to our table and drink order taken. Drinks arrived in around 5mins. Then we were given a guided tour of the buffet selection. The choices available we good. All food was piping hot and very tasty. Additional on the hose bhajis and samosas and Naan breads were bought to the table - nice touch.Were offered a complementary drink at the end of the meal.

All in a super buffet lunch, good choice, good service and the bill was very reasonably priced - it worked out at under £10 per head!! (inc drinks).

Will definately recommend and return in the future. Cheers to all @ SL if you read this review!
