Came here with the family and booked in and was lucky enough that they actually gave us our own room. The food was delish and so so filling. They were very good with the older members of my family and gave them advise on the milder of the dishes, were on hand for drinks and other extras and were very... More

Waste of 25€ (well rice and naan were good) otherwise very disappointing. Butter chicken tasted nothing like every other butter chicken ive had, sauce was so watery and bright orange in colour. The popadons were soft in parts and as strange as it sounds tasted like they'd been left sitting under the lights too long, and of metal. I dont... More

This place gets better and better. Their special deal days mean you can treat yourself fully without breaking the bank (half price sit ins and takeaways on Tuesdays and half price on sit ins on Fridays!) The manager is a marketing genius. He really deserves the business. He has brought out a great app which gives you a breakdown of... More

You can be very lucky or very unlucky here. Wait times for a take out vary a lot as well. The most annoying thing is that they forget some of the take out order regularly...so check before you leave

Have been here a few times before but can't be beaten for nice food and good value for money. A big plus is that you can bring your own wine with no corkage charge. There is a very good menu with something for everyone if you enjoy Indian food, they also have some very good deals like a starter and... More

Arrived at about 3pm on a Sunday to see they were serving a buffet special until 4pm. When you walk inside it's very dimly lit and there were no staff members to be seen until we walked around a corner and found them. We asked for a table and were brought to one where they then set it in front... More

Would compare well with other Indian food I've eaten in UK/Ireland. Good on quality and price, with special deals on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sunday lunch. Lamb Madras, Chicken shashlik, Sag Paneer are favourite dishes. Lamb is normally v tender. Tuesdays is half price takeaway. Hard to beat!

Got food delivered from bombay diner. It was poor. Lamb was dry, hard and chewy. The starters were tiny. Naan bread was good. Very dissapointing
