Fantastic modern Indian food with a twist (the sea bass sashimi was delicious), presented beautifully with great, friendly service. One of the best dinners I’ve had in a long time. For the excellent quality of the food, I felt it was good value. Can’t wait to go back.

Fine Dining is rarely a relaxing experience but this restaurant has managed to achieve the best of both worlds - modern casual dining with a fine-dining setup. There is no reason why this restaurant isn't one of the most popular in these parts.

Really good Italian restaurant with numerous delicious options and generous portions. It was surprisingly quiet for our Sunday lunchtime visit and deserved to have been a lot busier!

Excellent service, very well spoken, clear, friendly, efficient maitre d. A very broad choice of starters, mains, dessets, making the choice difficult. Six guests in this particular party all had excellent meals, lamb on couscous was simply wonderful as was the chicken supeme. The service was well paced. Not our first time, and definitely not our last !

About the restaurant
Home to one of the largest music festivals in the UK, Reading is the perfect place to drum up an appetite. Luckily, there’s a Bill’s waiting for you in the centre of town. Swing on by to tuck into one of our signature dishes after a day of shopping, or perhaps re-hydrate after a gorgeous walk along the Thames. In front of our beautiful restaurant you will find the sunshine terrace and above the main restaurant we have a stunning private dining room that can suit parties from 15 to 40 seated or up to 70 standing!
