Other reviewers who think this restaurant is a "gem" or suchlike quite frankly need to get out more. The food was bland, the sauces were vivid colours, service was meh, decor OK, the tables/chairs would be more suited to a pub than an Indian restaurant....More

I suppose we're spoiled living near brilliant Indian restaurants in Tooting and so we do understand that elsewhere blander tastes are catered for. That said there is no excuse for what we were served this evening. Bland and dry tandoori that took forever to appear...More

Having heard so much good feedback we finally got round to ordering a take away tonight. Overall we have found the food very underwhelming, chewy lamb and two curries which we are used to eating both seemed very under spiced. Disappointed
