Took student daughter at her request. We ate at 9.30pm and the place was barely 1/4 full: still they got the order wrong and ignored us unless I waved at them. So not the greatest culinary experience. I prefer the Indian Tiffin Room!!

Visited with a group of friends after a recommendation, in particular naming for the Butter Chicken. We followed this advice, also getting some rice and a naan, and it was a delicious meal. Will be returning!

We went early, and got 20%. Always a good start. Anyway, food delicious, staff very helpful, and friendly. The restaurant is nice and clean. There’s so much choice on The Mile I do like to try new restaurants, but I will definitely come back here.

What a great find this restaurant was as we have never been disappointed with the food and the service also really good. The only criticism would be the price of the drinks but you are in a city so !! Always very tasty food here...More
