    I felt that things were rushed, we no sooner had been seated and we were asked for drinks at least twice before we had chance to look at the drink’s menu. Service was on the slow side. Some ordered desserts which came at all different times, one person had to wait a long time, by the time the dessert had arrived the others had finished. I had to send by meal back due to the chicken being tough, I thought it was a raw potato at first. Would I return I’m not sure, the price is average, some things were a little over average. The décor is bright and colourful.

    Third visit. Already know what I am going to have on my next visit, recommended by the waiter. Try something different every time and never been disappointed. Delicious food and excellent service.

    Great food in a friendly atmosphere- different choices to the usual Indian restaurant. Staff very attentive and helpful. Good sized portions with super sized naan breads and plenty of rice. Our only gripe is that our drinks didn’t arrive until the main course ( we had eaten appetisers and starters by then!).

    Food was excellent. Our meals all had a bit of a kick which we loved. Drinks on the other hand not so good - charging £5 for a small bottle of cobra is daft.

    Lovely place, decor is good and overall clean. We were welcomed and our table was ready on time. The food was good, plenty of choice and although not large portions they were more than sufficient. However our main issue was being rushed, our plates were taken away before we had hardly finished, some of my naan was removed but we were not asked if it was done, all so quick didn’t get chance to complain. We were then presented with the bill though we hadn’t asked for it at that time, we weren’t asked if we wanted coffee or dessert. Just surprised at being rushed, got the feeling they wanted our space for others. Three drinks, poppadums, 2 mains, sides and we were out in 40 minutes! We were thanked for visiting when leaving but will think twice before visiting again due to being rushed.
