Have visited this place several times a year for a number of years. Tonight the food was not good, especially the nan bread which was not cooked. Also the portion sizes have been reduced (I assume as cost saving).

Good Indian Cuisine is hard to find, and this exceeded our expectations. Service was impeccable. Plates were not cleared from the table until everyone had finished eating - a rare treat! Service could be described as slow, but we went for a comfortable, relaxed family...More
