Only grumble would be the naan it was like a sponge cake so doughy and undercooked. Everything else we had was great.

After reading all the fab reviews I really wanted to come away feeling like they were well deserved. Sadly for me it wasn’t the 5 stars. Service wasn’t great not very attentive at all. Food was ok but wasn’t wowed and no deserts. Not even icecream which my daughter was very disappointed with but understand why if they it’s something that doesn’t sell. We were just left once we had finished our meal. Didn’t even ask us if we wanted anymore drinks. I just felt as if we were just a number. We paid and left. Won’t be returning any time soon which is a shame. Maybe it was just an off day

We are very sorry that the service was not up to the standards we strive for. Unfortunately, we were unexpectedly short-staffed over the weekend and that’s why the service was a little lacking. Hopefully on your next visit things will be back to normal. We look forward to seeing you soon.

With a mobility problem I was unsure where I was walking especially with the steps down. But then, once seated, light seemed to grow and we were ok. We really enjoyed the whole experience. Food divine. Staff friendly. Good atmosphere. Value for money. Certainly will be visiting again especially ally as we are local.

My chicken was pretty burned on one side, but burned is burned. Probably 20% of it to take a guess. Also, they had no pudding, it’s pretty odd that they don’t even keep a tub of basic vanilla ice-cream or something at least. To be fair they couldn’t be blamed for this last complaint directly, but mother of god it got obnoxiously loud at some points from multiple tables. I’d give it a miss next time, seems it’s changed owners or so shame really.

The quality of our food and service is what we are famous for, so it pains me to not be able to sort a problem out when it happens. Sorry Shalim
