Food very tasty but portions very small compared to when we visited in June. Bad value which is such a shame.

Food beautiful, service first class. If your looking for cheap this isn't the place but food worth it. Only criticism is as a nice little touch some more prawn crackers we were given a bowl of 6 crackers between 4 of us. We had to buy an additional bowl for £3.45 & again got 6 crackers. Poor considering our bill was way over £200.

Food was very bland, and there didn’t seem to be communication between staff, we kept getting asked the same questions about drinks and ordering when we literally had just done it with someone else, this happened 3 times. Everything else was lovely, but food being bland is a big no for me.

Dropped a star on service as the first waitress was a little disinterested. Other than that, another lovely experience and excellent food. We shall be back.

The food was amazing! But... I was expecting more from the cocktails from the advertising on the website, it does have a cocktail bar but with limited choice. That said, will 100 percent be going again!

Found this place on google reviews so thought would try. When we arrived was very nice place but we was given a tiny table next to the kitchen which wasn’t really the best but anyway service was quick. Food overall was very basic and lobster was to salty and lamb was extremely rare is curry. Nothing amazing really. No toilet roll in ladies toilets . Also when paying the bill in cash was asked would you like your change ? Strange question to ask after already have a service charge added onto the bill and really would of liked to of been given change back and for us to Decide to leave it or not.
Wouldn’t say it was really bad but just somewhere probably wouldn’t go again.

We had set menu 1 the food was average , the mains it would of been better if ur was 2 curries end a noodle dish rather then 3 curries as there wasn’t enough rice given for 3 curries . The dessert range was small. The food was average and service and ambiance was good though. Happy that all the food was halal. Nice as we was able to try everything.


I wouldn’t come here again due to quality of food.

Set meal for 2, very worth it.. friendly staff, fantastic environment design..
Would recommend to ask for milder dishes as very warm (separate yoghurt provided) & table water.
Possibly offer prawn crackers

Loved the staff, the design & layout of the restaurant , the table spacing, the menu and pricing. The only criticism would relate to the accoustics , the ceiling,walls and mirrors seem to amplify the conversations. A few more soft furnishings would help reduce the sound bouncing off the smooth surfaces.
Why not ask a designer to source some modern designs in tapestry/material to complement the stylish modern interior .

We enjoyed our evening immensely but left before the party of sixteen moved from the bar to eat a the table next to us.

We plan to return again early evening.

The food was gorgeous and the service 10/10

Great restaurant, contemporary and spacious, lovely staff and professional service, nicely presented, well flavoured curries, although in my opinion the mains were better than the starters. A little bit pricey for what you get, but not enough to stop us going again.
