What a find! Reputation keeps this restaurant busy as its a bit out of the way of the ‘main drag’.

Superb decor and oh my golly - WHAT delicious food.

The pompadums were so fresh and crispy with fab dips and the main courses, hot and well cooked.

Incredibly good value for money - top class!

Easy to find, very welcoming greeting, prompt service. They have very attentive waiters that not ask is too much. Food was delicious and prices were brilliant, loved the ambience. I used to be a waitress for four years with a tough boss to learn from and their standards and customer service were faultless.

We had a booking with this restaurant on a Sunday evening (bank holiday weekend) and the restaurant wasn't busy.

We felt that we were ostracised the moment we showed up (with 2 kids) and were sent to the area where literally no one was sitting (back area on a side).

We asked if we could move to the booth table and was told we can't as we have a pram. I said the pram doesn't need to be next to us, therefore shouldn't be an issue. The owner / manager replied and said that "that's the table you've been allocated, so it's that or nothing". I then replied saying "you're not busy, and we prefer to sit somewhere where we could be seen by the waiting staff but if you're not moving us, you're ok to lose us as a customer?" to which he replied "yes, if you're not sitting on that table, it's up to you to stay or leave". I walked back to the table where we were told to sit, and told my husband about it. We normally spend over £100+ on dinners, and because of how we've been treated even if we knew that we didn't have a booking anywhere else, we walked away from this rude, narcissistic owned establishment!

If you have kids with you, stay away from this place! It may be the last indian place in the world, I'd rather have no dinner, than to be treated badly by the supposedly owner / manager of this place!

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 !!
