We were accommodated very well last minute. The food was delicious and our waiter, Oliver, looked after us very well all night.

Staff were welcoming and pleasant & the restaurant was a good choice for a birthday celebration. Food was delicious & well presented. Some of the starter dishes were a little hotter in spice than we were used to (samosa & prawn) but were still tasty, so I’ll seek advice next time. Prices are higher end & service charge is applied at 12.5%, but the overall with the outside terrace and ambience it made for a lovely meal experience.

We were in the restaurant not in a pod. I definitely recommend a pod as it is better atmosphere and I felt like we were forgotten about in the restaurant. Food was outstanding

Waited 45 minutes for our starters (which was cold & salty) to arrive and hadn't received our drinks until we decided to leave because of the poor service. The management did not care for any of the customers who were not in a pods and refrained from dealing with our complaints until we approached them. Clearly the restaurant can not manage serving their customers at the capacity of pods as well as the restaurant. I recommend focusing their efforts on the pods as it seems to be the only customers they can manage. I blame the management rather than the waiting staff as it was nothing they could do but deal with the amount of customers.

Unfortunately couldn’t get a pod and were made to feel like a lesser guest. Thumping music coming from bar with no actual music for restaurant diners and more than half hour wait for drinks. New staff under trained at a high service level price. Really disappointed after a previous visit in a pod that was superb.

This Restaurant is amazing. Staff are patient, polite and communicated well through out. The twin brothers offered myself and my friends brilliant service. It was my sister's birthday and she absolutely loved the place. We are thinking of doing this again in November..But please the bathroom needed a lil attention.Thank you xx

Food is great. On the pricey side but portions are good so don't order too much. Service for drinks was slow but it was a Saturday so was very busy. Over order your drinks as soon as you arrive

Food was amazing and setting was beautiful. Staff were very friendly and professional. Music was played quiet loud and we had a speaker above our heads but once we asked for it to be turned down a little it was better.

Really disappointed, food was just about average. Service was terrible, food came out with out anything to eat it off, we had to ask for plates.
Ridiculously busy and no social distancing.
Lots of staff but no organisation.

Managed to get a late minute reservation on a Friday in the restaurant
De-contamination pod before you enter the restaurant which was reassuring!
Fantastic food. Fantastic service. Great atmosphere
Will definitely book a pod and come again with friends

Quite simply the best Indian food I’ve ever had, one of the cleanest restaurants I’ve ever eaten in and the COVID 19 entry system which takes your temperature and disinfects you is on a level you’d expect at an airport

Place looks nice. Service is poor. Left us 6 to sort our own dinner plates out. High end London prices. Good very small portions especially the rice. Food tasted ok nothing special.

Really poor experience here, our food took almost 2 hours to arrive, we were seated in a really drafty spot (they just left the door wide open all night) so asked if we could move, they agreed but then took 20 minutes to just wipe another table so we could. Food was mediocre at best. I don’t often write reviews but this place was honestly pretty poor.

I appreciate that we attended on a night when the eat out to help out scheme was on, so expected them to be busy. There was 12 of us (including 5 children), and although we sat down at 7 (our reservation time), we actually didn’t get served our starters until 9:30pm! This was also after we asked more than several times as the children were starving and extremely restless. The restaurant messed up our drinks due to non availability, but then replacements arrived nearly 2hrs late! The children received their dinner near to 10pm at which point we had said that if we didn’t receive our dinner soon, we were willing to leave. We were there to celebrate my sisters birthday, and we ended up taking our cakes back to cut at home, as we had no idea how long it would take to bring the cutlery! We were not the only ones prepared to leave that night. The service was just appalling, and speaking to the manager didn’t help as he didn’t seem to care.

This restaurant is very local to us, and had the experience have been better we (and I’m sure many others) would likely come back. We were disappointed.
