Tardis-like with good high ceiling and nicely decorated room at the back. Straight out of the oven bread, fresh salad, perfectly grilled meat, good service, generous portions and surprisingly well priced. This is rare quality! Get there quick before the hordes and inevitable price increase....More

We popped in here last night and were very impressed. The food is delicious and cooked to order. Friendly staff, decent portions and with the BYOB it's extremely good value for money. Looking forward to going back several times and introducing friends and family.

Only had a take away, but very disappointed. Food was bland and stodgy and service a bit haphazard. Use the sister restaurant Junakhi instead - always great quality there which is why surprised at poor quality food at Damakh.
