Hubby and I visited for a mid week dinner. The food was ok as long as you like chilli in everything including the onion salad and excessive amounts of whole cloves of garlic in your dishes. The really disappointing thing was the attitude of one of the waiters - utterly ignorant; an apparent effort made to ignore me, actively excluding... More

It's really interesting to see the mixed reviews but my experience has always been very good. Whatever curry I have chosen it has always been very tasty. The service I would describe as business like and efficient. I will be back, my favorite in Balsall.

Busy restaurant with good choice of both drinks and meals. I had chicken rezela from the Bengali menu with boiled rice and garlic naan which was delicious and very well cooked. Service very efficient and good atmosphere. The prices are good value also. Will definitely return again soon and I certainly recommend this great curry house.

Delicious menu. Modern comfortable setting and great service. I sometimes come with the family and also to collect take aways like this latest time. The food is always ready on time, the staff are courteous and on the ball even when it's rammed, like most nights. The chicken Tamerind is becoming a firm fave. Try the rest but this is... More

I am sure they pride themselves on the level of service, but to be honest it feels like you only have the table for an hour and then they want you gone. We was asked if we wanted poppadoms as soon as we sat down, they arrived at the table 2 minutes later. We was then asked on 3 occasions... More

Disappointing! Heard that it was good, so was looking forward to visiting. However, upon our arrival you are greeted with a messy entrance hallway full of Cobra boxes. Restaurant was freezing, but it was early, so maybe the heating hadn't kicked in. Service was very abrupt and as I was against the wall, they seemed to toss stuff on my... More
