Seems very new? Bare white walls and very stark lighting. Beer supplied in bottles or poured from a can. The chutneys were neon yellow and fluorescent orange. Lamb balti was really bland and spiceless despite being advertised as "fairly hot". Wouldn't go back.

Customer service here is dreadfull. The offer was 1 starter, 1 main and 1 rice or bread, for £10.95, I asked for any recommendations for starter, and was told, no , you choose, food was mediocre, but service was terrible!

Got the Tuesday special deal - plus you can bring your own drinks without corkage (M&S football round the corner is a great stop for a drink). Food is good and service is of a good standard too. Recommended..

Its clean, BUT the food was truly shocking, the starters contained the entire Dead Sea worth of salt, and perhaps someone should introduce them to pepper. Huge main courses, indistinguishable from each other (fifty shades of red food colouring). And the lights, dear god the...More
