Food is acceptable at best. Their attitude however: shocking. Owner is immediately impertinent and impudent unless you're from his target clientele 'profile': i.e Caucasian. Never experienced someone so insulting and with such a deep-rooted superiority complex.

We were passing the Standard last Friday and decided to call in on the off chance of getting seat as we hadn't booked. We were offered a table in the corner, but were told it was rebooked for 90 mins time, this was fine with us. We had poppadums and pickles for starters, lovely warm fresh poppadums, the only thing...

We have been here several times now, especially with two grandsons at Uni in the City. Food for six tonight, served with a smile, hot and full of flavour. We always enjoy coming here, its not the smartest place and it's quite small, but the reward is good food and service.

We booked here for a family reunion meal and they team of staff very welcoming. Although booked for out numbers put on two different tables which wasnt ideal but ok. The food when came ok but as plates cold the food went cold very quickly. Food ok but I found it rather bland and I'm not one for spicy food.... More

This family run restaurant is a firm favourite of mine; the staff are friendly, restaurant is always full (always a good sign) and the food is out of this world!! I opted for the Goan king prawn curry with a paratha instead of rice. The prawns were ENORMOUS but it was the sauce that blew my mind; it was delicious!... More

This was our last meal in England, and it did not disappoint the Vindaloo and naan were well done and the beer was cold. The service was friendly and efficient. I wish this was my local Indian Restaurant!
