Really tasty food with good portion sizes and excellent menu choice. Waiters were really friendly and decor is lovely and modern. We were there in Friday and it was very busy, demonstrating popularity meanwhile indian next door was empty. Handy public car park at rear.

We booked a table here for a large party early on a Saturday night. Initially the restaurant was very accommodating and the service was good. However, towards the end of the meal when everyone still had drinks left, they cleared up the food, and only offered one person on our table coffee or dessert, completely ignoring the rest of our...

6 of us had a great evening. The food was delicious and the service was great, we had such a fun night and our waiter was hilarious. I'll be honest I read the reviews from November and was a little concerned, but everything was spot on and they couldn't do enough. I went off menu and just said this is... More

Very good service & a waiter with a sense of humour. I didn't like the dips that came with the popadoms, the mint sauce was very eateted diwn. The prawn starter which smelt gorgeous but didn't taste as good, .my partner was very happy with his mixed starter. I had a monkfish main , which I thoroughly enjoyed, really lovely.... More

When you go to restaurants and there is always a table no one wants. we were lucky enough to get that table! We ordered drinks and 4 different waiters came to us to double check our order, 2 large cobra can't be that difficult surely? Poppadum's arrived with a black hair in the mango chutney. Waiter came to take our... More

We arrived early to an empty restaurant. Ushered to the window Table. It was quite chilly because they had the air con blowing cold air...on a chilly November evening! The waiters were friendly and professional enough. We ordered shared starters which were quite nice. Portions were plenty along with the poppodums we ordered...the mains followed shortly after clearing the starters... More

8 friends and I had a table booked for 7pm on a Wednesday evening so we rocked up at the agreed time and were greeted warmly before being seated on a large table in the corner of the restaurant. Unfortunately, the warm welcome was the best thing we received as things went downhill very fast from there on in. We... More

I know they have just added amounts on the bill before so we asked for a proper bill listing the drinks for the... More

Banquet night and 1 person didn't eat meat so we asked for a starter as a main course. This person was told they cannot do that and MUST have the banquet if everyone else is (although banquets split rice / naan between 2 and there were 9 of us - maths anyone?) Eventually the staff agreed that she doesn't have... More
