Generally very good. The soft drinks were 'flat' which is not good when they are expensive and the popadoms were slightly soft. Otherwise all good. Please keep up the standards.

we have eaten here many times, its usually good.. i had booked a table for 7.45pm & arrived on time. we waited 15 mins to get a table & another 1hour before any food arrived . takeaways were heading out the door ,the restaurant full. the staff are nice people & working flat out.. when food finally arrived our side dishes of onion & cauliflower baji were cold , also our main dishes quickly dropped in temperature. the food i suspect had been microwaved on cold dishes & not up to usual standard . i complained after not finishing the food & was given a discount.. not sure if ill return here !!

Food was great. Unfortunately they seemed to have missed our booking and we had to wait 20 minutes and where then sat next to the fire escape that had a bad draft. Food and value was excellent tho, but unfortunately terrible seats.
