I am a big fan of Indian food but can only visit select restaurants due to their lack of vegetarian food, but this restaurant has a few mains to choose from. I've been here twice now and enjoyed it both times. The staff are pleasant enough, the restaurant is nicely located and modernly decorated inside, the food I've tried has been delicious, very rich and filling and priced reasonably. Would definitely recommend visiting this restaurant as I've found in pleasant and others I've spoken to about it share the same opinion!

Called in on the off chance for a quick curry. We were blown away with how nice it was. Possibly the very best Indian meal we have ever had. Staff were very courteous and attentive and the food was wonderful. Can't wait to come back.

Im very sad to say that i did not enjoy ny experience here. The staff were pleasant enough and thats why ive given a score of 2.

The atmosphere was hectic. We came late in the evening and deapite the resturant only being half full it was so so loud! The table next to us were very rowdy and deunk. Not the resturants fault but they could have sat us somewhere else.

The food was really not good. I ordered an aubergine dish. The sauce was flavourless and sort of sweet. I also ordered a peshwari naan. There were no raisins inside and it was stuffed with a very sweet coconut paste, it tasted like it should be dessert. I didnt eat it. There were 5 of ys and only one really enjoyed their meal. Shame.
