Honestly, so poor I cannot explain it - nor can I be bothered to do so. I’ve already lost out on money and had a great night out with my wife ruined by this place.

It used to be good. Perhaps it’s Covid related, not sure.

We went in 2017, it wasn't as good as last time, food more blander and less quirky, the service was really poor, forgot our drinks orders, brought them out at the end of the meal (what are we supposed to do with them then?!) We had a cake, waiter didn't add the sparkler candle, and put the 60 candles backwards to (06) kind of spoiled the moment

We had a lovely evening, we wanted to stop on and have a few more drinks but the table was booked for another couple, although some empty tables around.
Never the less, food always brilliant never disappoints.
A fair few kids running around which was abit frustrating as the parents didn’t rein any of them in, used the restaurant as a playground.

they would keep running past our table for the whole duration, doing relay running.
no fault of Staff at ASHA’s but We were having a night off from our beautiful baby of 18months to be out and have the noise coming from 4-5kids aged between 6-12, was highly disappointing as they spent 2hr just being silly and not one family member regulating their behaviour, unsure whether the staff asked them to deal with the kids!

Dinner was brilliant.
Cocktails in the chest were nice and boozy.

Food was absolutely sublime, especially the Amritsari fish. Manuel who served us was very prompt and accommodating. We will definitely be returning soon, there are many more items we wish to try on the menu!
The only downside is that the lighting is very dim, and it was difficult to read the menu as a result.

Having been recommended the restaurant by a friend who has waxed lyrical about the place, we had high hopes. In fact, the experience was very underwhelming. It is a very large restaurant and they were busy. Service involved grabbing a waiter that was passing you in the main. We asked about the feast but were told it was 'one piece of this each, one piece of that each etc', there was no selling of the dish. Underwhelmed we opted not to bother. The squid starter was good. I'm afraid the main courses all tasted generic. We tried each others dishes and they all tasted pretty much the same. We won't be returning ...unless my friend drags me!

Chicken had a bad flavour

A plate of Bombay mix with yoghurt on top is not worth £8..

Bit disappointed that we had asked for a private booth as it was our wedding anniversary but the restaurant was unable to accommodate us as the only booth for couples was in use and the other booths were only available for groups of four.

We were eventually seated in the private glass room with a family party, but they were lovely people and it was a nice ambience in there.

We had the Samosas to start with Chicken Tikka curry and a Chicken Biryani as mains, all beautifully cooked and the service from the waiting staff was excellent.

Nice place, good atmosphere despite social-distancing.
We had set lunch.
Nice poppadoms but there was only yogurt mint sauce accompanied them.
The starter platters were fantastic, particularly the succulent huge King prawn. A few leaves of salad would have made it perfect.
Disappointing main courses though. Chickpeas curry was dull and the other dish, fish curry, had almost the same colour and taste as each other. My expectation of Stone Seabass in my curry was dismissed as a favourless fish, almost like the cheap Vietnamese Pangasius fish. The sides were good, the fragrance saffron rice and very light and fluffy naan bread.

Next visit, we will order from the À la carte menu.

The angle of sunlight from where I sat revealed lots of finger marks all around the neck of water carafe, needs attention!

Food always delicious however it seems this time our server might not have got the food out when serviced was called as the butter chicken was warm not piping hot like usual the chips were cold and the onion salad came out towards the end of my meal, the server was talking so quiet we could not hear him he could not understand any of my requests I had to repeat myself 10 times and he was so slow working his way around his section

Excellent food and service. £9.95 for a little dish of saag was a little excessive, but overall a lovely time was had. Would really recommend to anyone who likes tasty curries.
