“Good Indian Food !!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

It's been a while since I was here and there has obviously been a change of management in the meantime. A small roadside spot but nicely decorated and in this price range I would say very good food and most pleasant Indian lady front of house.
We were 'hankering' after a decent Indian meal and one is certainly not 'spoilt for choice' in the area so popped in and just picked three dishes - Lamb kalari, Tarka dhal, and Bombay aloo. (Please excuse my spelling if incorrect) - there was a real depth of spice to the three dishes - really tasty and the lamb was really tender. Plain Naan with a Pilau Rice and we were 'happy out'. We spend time locally and looking forward to visiting on a regular basis.

“A restaurant that lives up to it's name!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

This tiny roadside Indian restaurant is worth finding as the food is excellent. Quality spices and ingredients were well crafted by the chef and served with a smile in the restaurant.

We were a party of 10 and the only comment by a couple of folks was that their dish could have been hotter but considering the chef works alone he did well in my opinion.

I had the chicken tikka buna which was delicious!

A traditional Indian restaurant that was a real treat. We went back for takeaways on our nights in!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Nice cosy little place. The Indian waitress was very welcoming and friendly. I had the Lamb Dopiyaza which had really tender pieces of Lamb in a perfect sauce with subtle spice flavours. My partner had Lamb Korma which also was delicious. I also had Peshwari Naan which came piping hot with melted butter. This is exactly how I like it and it was exquisite. The Pilau rice was also fragrant and sublely spiced how it should be.

We are very fussy about our Indian food and this place really took us by surprise. The chef knows his stuff. The house red was also excellent and good value for a full bottle.

We will be going back again in a few days.

“Lovely Staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

Not the busiest restaurant, but the owners are lovely people who have made every effort to bring the restaurant up to a beautiful standard, food is beautiful presented flavoursome and what you are looking for in an Indian restaurant, poppadoms not good avoid but curries are flavoursome and what you expect from a late curry.Not a romantic meal out but a curry before bed would be OK.

“Fabulous food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Have been here a few times over the past couple of years and have not been disappointed once. The food is amazing and reasonably priced. Probably best to book your table if you are going on a Saturday in the summer months.
