Worst indian ive ever had...aswell as that the place itself is dingy, dull and in major need of a facelift! Staff not very nice either..had to ask more than once for things and were unprofessional. Poor standard of food, could just about eat it.

Last went to this restaurant a good few years ago and it was very good. Under new ownership, it has lost it's alcohol licence, which was a bad start. I had a Lamb Jalfreezi, which was bland, plenty of chilli, but tasted like hot stewed meat, think they forgot to put the cumin, coriander and tumeric in. The next day... More

Take away menu was very expensive. Rice is not included in price. Food was not very good. Eating in the restaurant 2 weeks earlier was much better and we availed of 50% discount off main course. These offers were not readily available when we called to order our takeaway and staff were not very forthcoming with the information.

We ate here for my Aunt's 50th and the service was a little slow but there was 18 of us in the group so it's understandable. The food was great though nice and spicy just the way I like it. They also have a half price main course deal on Fridays which is extremely good value

Not licensed but u can bring ur own. The food is top quality and better than most other Asian restaurants. There's always some type of meal... More

Having visited here many times and previously given it a high review i feel I needed to give a second review to show my latest feelings for the place. On all doors going in they advertise any starter and main and pilau rice (excluding fish dishes) for £13.95. Happy to see this offer I order a chicken starter and main... More

It would be hard to beat the Sunday buffet lunch for value. The restaurant could do with an upgrade - don't be put off by the entrance and the décor - but the food is excellent and the staff members are extremely pleasant and helpful. I've never been disappointed by the food here and I am a regular visitor.
