The food was poor on my visit with lazy cooking. An onion Bhaji the size of a tennis ball which is raw in the middle is not nice. The main was a poor assemblage, not an Indian dish or even an Anglo-Indian dish. The same ready cooked mock tandoori coloured chicken used in making the assorted starter was placed on some onions, peppers and whole chilli, no sauce at all. The chicken was not sauteed in mustard oil as described on the menu.

Clearly, they don’t care about the quality, authenticity or consistency of their Indian food, which for a customer is insulting. If I had been there with friends rather than work colleagues, I would have complained to the manager and left. I guess their low food hygiene rating says it all about their attitude to their customers.

Took Indian friends there twice and groups of colleagues / friends a couple of times. Pretty standard fare, but well executed.

Food excellent as always service with a smile nothing too much trouble. I would recommend the Naga Chicken if you like hot food with plenty of flavour

We phoned and asked for a table last minute but we're told the was space but then on arrival were left waiting for at least 15 minutes before being seated. For was quite good with God portions but the staff seemed so busy that the service suffered. We were often waiting a while to order a drink etc. Would give them the benefit of the doubt and go back but maybe not on a Friday night.
