Booked for Christmas Day dinner, would not have been my first choice, had a set menu which I felt had a very limited and more so, mediocre selection. Service was just OK, there were. 4 of us and they kept only bringing 3 of each course and had to wait for 4th numerous times, also shorted us on 2 appetizers and had to remind them. As to food, most of us had the curry chicken for main, pretty good, naan bread was excellent, cheesecake desert good also

We went there for team lunch with a hope of authentic Indian cuisine.we were very disappointed with the quality of food like chana masala was from tin rather then freshly cooked. Also on website they mentioned lot other items which is not available in actuals e.g. missi roti etc. On other hand it's felt expensive for no reason certainly no value for money .

We went on a Saturday night booked at 8.30 but didnt get seated till nearly 10pm. So although the food is really nice this was just unacceptable. Many others in the same boat. Standing around waiting on the promise it would be only 15 minutes longer. The waiter was very apologetic and took off the 'automatic' service charge. Disappointed. They should not overbook.

The service was terrible. Every time we ordered we had to wait almost an hour for the food which was less than satisfactory considering the price. The staff completely ignored us and the manager was incredibly rude considering we had spoke to him on multiple occasions regarding the issues we were having.

Would not recommend at all

Have eaten at sister restaurant and had promised ourselves a visit here. Came to celebrate my husband’s birthday on Sunday. We started with the portobello mushroom and the stuffed chilli pepper. Both delivered wonderful flavours. I opted for prawn KALONGE KING PRAWN ADRAKI while my husband chose PARSI DAHI NU GOSHT - lamb for main. Both dishes were lovely (we just had plain rice) with hits of chilli. My husband has eaten curries for over 35 years and has travelled extensively in India and said that outside of the country itself this was the best curry he had eaten.

The food was delicious! There was about 20 of us which is why I picked here and I was very impressed with the food quality. Quite possibly the best butter chicken I’ve had! Everyone was happy with the food and the staff were friendly and accommodating. There was a good speed of food service as well considering how large our group was, even though some of us had to wait a bit longer it was worth the wait and I look forward to a return visit!

We went there as my friend saw some photos on Instagram. The inside looked very spacious and outside had a lovely entrance. That wasn't the case and we just double checked to confirm we were at the right place. The reviews said that the grill area at the back makes fresh kebabs etc in front of your eyes. That area was not in use. The waiters didn't look very interested. The biryani was nice and the starters were good but the chicken main course was red in colour and chicken was dry and lacked flavour inside. The Indian tea at end of the meal took longer than the meal to arrive. The seats and tables were crammed together as it was hard to even get up and out. Overall 2 stars.

Busy on a Saturday night so quite a long wait to be served and for the food and drinks to arrive but made up for charming service and complimentary poppadums. Lamb buriyani especially good. The portions are small to moderate portions for an Indian restaurant.
