Have given this 3 stars as the vegetarian food is lovely and delicious, probably the best in that local area. Unfortunately the meat is not so good: -Haryali chicken was lovely and moist but a bit too salty - dhaba meat was tough to chew texture wise - butter chicken was nice but a bit over cooked The vegetarian dishes...

My wife & I had our wedding celebration here last weekend. The positives were they could accomodate nearly 100 guests for us in the function room, the food was nice and the venue was beautifully decorated. With 100 guests attending, most people brought cards with them and which we placed on a table in the far corner (the opposite side... More

The service was poor with only 2 couples in the whole restaurant. I wonder how they cope when it's full capacity. The fish starter... More

We came in on 26.10.2016 and was appalled at the service and food. There was a time when Kanchans provided mango chutney, chopped onions and mint chutney with the starters, however, now they provide mint chutney and a very sour imli chutney. Poppadums tasted as if they were old and just been re-heated. Haryali chicken was warm upon serving which... More

We used this venue for a party on the ground floor and I must say the catering and overall service was of an exceptional standard - there was also a live singer which added to the ambience.
