I’ve been eating here for 20 years. It’s always great. The owners and staff are lovely and courteous. I have witnessed rudeness and arrogant behaviour but only from fellow diners! Perhaps a lack of cultural sensitivity? Food is good quality and good value. Delivered by...More

Having just been to the place, I have to say there are a vanishingly small number of places where I have been so utterly disgusted with the service. The guy (who I assume amwas the manager) I spoke to was the most arrogant individual I...More

Honestly if you haven’t been here you are missing out! The flavours are delicate and well balanced. The onion bhajee is the best I have ever had anywhere. The staff are overwhelmingly friendly and have been for years. Small restaurant but very accommodating.

My visit here was short spent due to the rudeness of the staff. As soon as we entered the restaurant, the front of House gentleman was insulting - “no service here” when we asked for a table for 2, despite it being super quiet at...More

This is fabulous indian food. Best food, best price, it makes me feel sad for the rest (well nearly). Check out the chicken dansak or a kari or a kalia.
