Compliments to the chef here, probably the best curry I've had and that includes more curry houses than I'd care to admit to. We had a selection including chicken, lamb, scallops, prawns, monkfish and a few other bits, for me every individual meat/fish was very well cooked which is a rarity in itself with such a variety.

Added to this the Peshwari naan was excellent, light and fluffy with plenty of coconut and well balanced. The prawns in particular were a real delight, perfectly cooked and clearly well sourced, great size and flavour. This place clearly goes for quality over quantity, not that the portions were small but they certainly were delightful. It's rare for me to be this enthusiastic about a curry but this one was hard to fault so credit where it's due.

The staff worked hard and probably could use an extra staff member or two, service was in general very good, polite and quick apart from a slight delay on the bill, no-one was standing around though just very busy so I can understand that.

Thoroughly recommended.

Was recommended this place by a local police that was guarding Balmoral and he was right, its a cracking place, hence was full, the food was very tasty, maybe marginally more than expected in terms of price but bear in mind where it is, is is possibly the going rate but great food
