went out for a quite meal and was welcomed very well, but then the staff put that all wrong, was rushed to order food even tho the place was empty, then we got given our starters they was wrong so sent back to correct them. after my girlfriend had finished her's and i still had a few mouth fulls left the waiter come across and told us the mains was ready then just picked up my plate and removed it even tho i was still eating!!!! and after that we then had to wait 10 minutes for the mains to come!!!! i must say tho the main food was very good just a pain that the staff let it all down. never again for a sit down meal but would use as a takeaway if had to.

Not familiar with Indian restaurants, we decided to give this one a try, and at 7 pm got to the restaurant, we were shown to a table for four, although there were only 2 of us, the waiter saying "this will give you more room", nice touch.
Decided on the set meal for 2 as we don't know Indian food and that seemed to give us a good selection at a reasonable price, ordered a pint of Cobra beer, and that was reasonably priced for a restaurant, as cheap as Wetherspoons.
Starters of poppadoms came, followed by onion bhagee,and chicken, then mains of chicken, lamb, potato and nan bread with rice, plenty for 2.

We couldn't finish it all and were asked whether we wanted to take some home, another nice touch.

Very attentive staff, a special thank you to M.D. SHOHEL, who gave great service to us.

Visited with friends during the Easter weekend. The restaurant was busy, but the atmosphere was nice.
The waiting staff were very attentive and didn't worry when we changed or order at the last minute.
Excellent choice of food, and everything we selected was enjoyed.
The only niggle I had was when the drunk takeaway crowd came in - our table was next to the counter, so we had to put up with a lot of noise and bad language. Maybe the other should look at an alternative area where takeaway orders could be placed and collected?

First visit; early weekday evening. Staff very attentive, polite & accomodating.
Initially only ones in restrauant but quickly filled from 7 onwards. Starters - Chicken Pakora and Chicken Chat, both excellent & v well presented - quality rather than quantity. Mains - Aakbori King Prawn Massala & Sweet Chilli Panir, pilau rice, plain nan and okra. 10/10 for Aakori, 8/10 for Sweet Chilli Panir - slightly artificial taste (Sweet Mango Chutney?), again v well presented and not too much (hate wasting food).
Price very good for quality.
Worth mentioning is when I asked about size of prawns (fallen foul of irrenous desriptions previously) un-cooked prawns were brought to the table.
Recommended.
