Really enjoyed my lunch here, the cod in tamarind was delicious and the aubergine fritters really crispy.

The staff were friendly and attentive. We only wanted vegetarian food this evening. There were 6 vegetarian dishes but not as many for meat eaters. We had the baby aubergine and spiced potatoes, okra and tomato, and potato and cauliflowers. All were fresh and not over cooked, which makes a change. However there was very little difference in the flavour... More

Not sure what the fuss is about Food was ok but nothing special, had many a better curry in glasgow. Sauce was salty and watery.. Couple of points that result in the low score. Asked if we wanted poppadoms.. 60p on menu for poppadoms , however this is for each individual poppadom (singular). When checking the bill we were charged... More

We arrived early for dinner and got a seat without a reservation, as we left, the line of people was out the door and down the sidewalk. Excellent... More

The total truth is that I can't consider myself an expert in Indian food, so all I can say is that this is delicious food. Really delicious food! And of the examples of Indian cuisine that I have tried in Britain - this was my favourite. The lunch is reasonably priced, certainly in view of the quality. The service was... More

Been here a few times now. Never disappoints, whoever had the idea of Indian Tapas should be highly rewarded! So much choice, and great guidance from the staff. Highly recommended.

Thank Garry M
