Cold empty restaurant, 6 in our party, two hours to wait for luke warm main courses. A very threatening abusive manager when made aware of poor food. Would perhaps explain the lack of customers in a place that was once a busy thriving establishment serving quality food. Avoid this place like the plague.

Ordered a delivery and they said 50 minutes. 1 hour and ten later they arrived with cold dishes (literally COLD) when we rang them they offered nothing, no replacement but advised to heat it in the microwave! Very very poor wish we had stuck with Anoki

We have had wonderful takeaways from here but thought as it was our anniversary we would visit, as usual wonderful food, and very generous portions, the naan breads we had were very light and scrummy.

We have visited this restaurant several times, this latest being New Year's Eve, and never been disappointed. They offer some really interesting and unusual Indian dishes as well as the usual favourites. The tables are well spaced out and the service is friendly and courteous. Wholly recommend!

Went for pre Christmas dinner midweek with friends. We all took the set menu of starters and 4 different currys for the mains. Pleasant evening in nice surroundings but the food was not memorable.

Food fabulous shame you only got half the order. But what you got was nice. No sheesh kabab. No poppadoms although the dressings were there. Enjoyed the lamb biriani and Nan bread. Couldn't be arises to complain as delivery time was over an hour. Would not use or recommend to anyone.

Never had a bad meal, in fact quite the opposite. But the service can be very slow at times. Just to mention, they do not open on a Monday anymore. As we found out when we went a couple of weeks ago. Surroundings are pleasant, and it's a rural country setting adds to it's charm. Décor is quite good but... More
