Lovely restaurant, nice staff, Tasty food from a varied menu. One star down as dishes described as hot should have more chilli heat than this. Otherwise spicing good.

We dined here last night, with friends who have been before and recommended it.

It reminded me of some of the quality Indian restaurants in Adelaide, unlike most UK experiences.

The setting was subtle with fantastic, authentic decor. Some of the furniture and art pieces were just fantastic.

The restaurant is deceptively large, with several rooms including upstairs, all set in a beautiful old house, close to the river.

The greeting was warm and the service was good for the entire evening.

But the foodie the real star here. Full of flavour, texture and interest. There had been a lot of work and time go into preparing this food, that was obvious.

One ofthe best meals that we had in the UK.

Better than the other Indian restaurant in the village by a long chalk. Food is more authentic and surroundings much more pleasant to be in. Better than average but not very good.

Went here in July for birthday party and sat outside. I made the mistake of having a starter - the squid. Utterly disgusting and must have been defrosted quickly so will not have again. Ghatti lamb is delicious. You need to know what you’re ordering here.

Had a bad experience here one time when they would not put the heating on and it was freezing cold and that put me off for a while. Private dining area upstairs is a good USP option which few places have around the area.

I think they do microwave some of the dishes which isn’t great but I think this is the bog standard lunch deal they do so I generally avoid it and go a la carte. Take away is small portions and all sauce so we always avoid it and eat in.

Lager on tap not available but they sell bottled Kingfisher and Singha which is ok. Draft Guinness would be a plus but I’m sure they won’t be going down that road.

We couldn’t get a table until 9pm so guess they were all tired!!Several tables needed cleaning and resetting Service was slow and food very poor. I ordered squid which in itself was lovely but was covered in a nearly raw unattractive chunky red and green peppers and a salad which was totally out of place. My husband had scallops which were over cooked ( this is the worst thing you can do to a scallop) and covered in mush. My main course was chefs main of the day - lamb chops which were lovely but like the scallops covered in a mush - probably the same mush although they call it a sauce- an unappetising mess on a plate - just like the scallops! For a bill of £95 which included a bottle of wine at £17 it was very expensive. We won’t be going back!!
