    Food was delicious and the menu has lots of choices. The sad part was we were expecting waiters in uniforms and a fine dining experience. It is more like a back street rough and ready cafe.

    Food was excellent. 6 people can be hard to please but everyone enjoyed it. The place needs a good tidy up and modernising. The back door had been left open to air the place with a view of an untidy yard with old furniture piled up. The place was pretty full so spend some money guys and you have a gold mine!

    Restaurant empty. Someone was cleaning and dusting around when we were eating. Even though on my Compare the Market app they refused to accept it and stated they were no longer part of the scheme. Food OK. Will not return.

    I thought it unfair to knock the ambience score down one due having an irritatingly loud constantly swearing pseudo intellectual at the next table, just my bad luck. That aside the food was superb. The mix of spice in the biryanis was divine and had so many layers to it. The staff were attentive and the personal attention of the chef showed his desire to produce fantastic food.

    Really tasty, excellent authentic Indian cuisine. Friendly staff. Clearly ingredients cooked from fresh. Highly recommend. Venue is informal and casual. Not fine dining or romantic. But certainly a quality food treat. We were table of two. A couple of groups dined too and were about the decibel you expect of groups in York at the weekend. I’ve read other amazing and valid reviews about 29 States which made my mind up to give it a go. The main criticism I read is waiting time. As long as you’re not in a rush, which I wasn’t, then it is worth the visit I can assure you.

    Looked on trip advisor which recommended this restaurant very disappointed with the actual place very tired looking and badly decorated. Rickety chairs and miss matched tables. A very large goldfish in a tank of green water gasping for air didnt do much for the ambiance either or the garden terrace with rubbish dumped all over it and ivy growing over the window to look out on. Food okay but sorry wouldn't go back there.
