We sat down to eat around 6pm by the time we left they were queueing down the street for tables. Great selection of dishes, setting was casual and trendy.

Let me first say that this place was referred to me by four other people that were not related to did not know about each other. I will be the fifth person to recommend this restaurant because it is absolutely spectacular. My wife and I enjoyed the butter chicken, fish pakora, vegetable pakora, jasmine rice, and an appetizer. Everything was... More

We loved the experience in this place. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were travelling with a child and made a good mess around their table. We were only greeted with warm smiles. The food was lovely and we just gobbled it endlessly... The seating area is little congested as the area is very small to the amount... More

Used to be a regular Friday evening at 5p.m. Fish pakora excellent and the Butter Chicken with rice my regular choice. Anytime I have been the staff were friendly and attentive.

The food at this Indian restaurant is our favourite ! It is mainly for takeaways but they have a few tables and unlike the Mother India's Cafe a few doors away they take table reservations. The curries are very light compared with other Indian restaurants we have been to and they have dishes which you don't get elsewhere. All the... More

Despite the restaurant not being full, we were seated directly opposite the kitchen where the door was open - which was not a pleasant site. The food was mediocre to say the least, but the service was the real let down. We were served with the mains promptly, but it took a further ten minutes to eat the rice, meaning... More

Friendly efficient staff. More unusual menu than most Indian restaurants. I enjoyed the chicken and potato pakora starter followed by a slow cooked chicken curry and chicken stock rice. A little on the expensive side but nice overall.

visited on a Monday night expecting it to be quiet but the restaurant was packed. We managed to get in and the feeling was good. Service was okay not overly attentive but not bad. The food is always a highlight here and never disappoints. beautifully balanced and full on flavour.

Thank raintorms
