    This is a lovely wee place with excellent food. Chicken Tikka Masala was exceptional and the rotis nice and crisp. We all enjoyed a 2 course lunch for £13.95 each. The only downside a bottle of sauvignon blanc was £25! which seems overpriced guys. Should a markup really be 150%

    The food was really excellent. My wife had one of their house curries and I had the lamb chops type dish. The only downside was the table we had booked wasn’t available so cue much mucking about. We got a free starter though and round of drinks which helped the situation

    Doesn't look much from the outside but the food here is outstanding. I called in on Monday evening to find the restaurant full, and fully booked for the remainder of the evening. I made sure I booked for the Wednesday night and wasn't disappointed. (Closed Tuesday).

    Online booking worked well on a busy night. Helpful, pleasant staff who gave good advice. Interesting menu seemingly reflecting a number of Indian/Bangladeshi regions. And good value for money. Good quality merlot but beer selection could be better. Would readily go again. To be recommended.

    Had read the great reviews on it so had it come and try for myself. Staff were great and really attentive. Food was on another level, fresh, spicy and very tasty with some dishes I haven’t seen before. Generous portions and the dishes we ordered sauces were so tasty. Up there with the best curries I’ve had Will defo be back.
