Ate here on Saturday night and would highly recommend it. Aziz (restaurant manager) went above and beyond to help get us last minute table. Great food & service.

Visiting from Holland we were looking for an Indian dining experience. The meal was first rate, full of flavour and very authentic. Service was attentive and professional. We were well looked after throughout the meal.

Brilliant Indian food. We felt like homemade Indian food away from home. Also staff is very nice. It is located very near to city centre.

We had poppadoms with chutneys to start and then we tried a... More
