I had the £9.95 lunch fish menu which gave me 2 pieces of fish pakora and I ordered the tandoori sea bass. When it came I had half a fillet of sea bass. I will not be back

Great food, really spicy when you ask for it. Staff were attentive and friendly. In summary it was a good experience. It was introduced to us as a Bangladesh restaurant but it tasted Indian. But still very good food.

Not sure what they raves are about. Each curry we had was bland and sweet. And, the sauce colors were odd, very vibrant (neon orange?!). Service was efficient and the place has some charm though I still wouldn't recommend it with other local options.

Fabulous service and good. Truly the tastiest Indian I have had in ages. The lunch menu was perfect for my small appetite and value for money was exceptional. The fresh taste was delicious!
