This restaurant has never let me down. I live within walking distance so am in there quite often. The food is brilliant and the service is very good and very friendly.

Very clean, smart looking restaurant. Staff friendly and Very attentive service. Food was delicious and some different dishes on the menu than others. A little more expensive than most Indian restaurants but worth it as a treat.

Side dishes were a bit small. However, the quality of the dishes was very good. Service was friendly and professional. Main meals, value for money. Side dishes, not so sure. That said, will return and recommend to friends and family.

Food excellent. Service hit & miss despite plenty of staff & restaurant not full. No complimentary drink when paying bill which was unusual?
