Totally enjoyable meal and all the dishes we ordered had there own character rather than being similar. Excellent house red wine for a value price. All staff attentive and friendly.

The restaurant is quite cramped and very hot with no windows open and spot lights above each seat. The toilets were not very clean or well looked after and so small that reaching for the toilet paper set the hand drier off, when I was relaying this to my fellow diners the waiter overheard but misheard and interrupted saying hand...

Visited on a Tuesday night which is banquet night, starter, main, side dish, and rice or a naan bread for £12.95 Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was good but could have been a bit warmer.

I had trouble finding this restaurant because its actually right on a main road junction and being in an old cottage it does not leap out as being an Indian restaurant! It was however very good in terms of food. They need to fix their interior decor below one of the windows which looked as though building works were needed... More

After reading so many good reviews I was seriously disappointed with the food. Tried a wide selection and everything was just tasteless. I think the chef forgot to put any Indian spices in the dishes we tried. Meat was too dry and chewy. The only good stuff was the mango chutney and Cucumber Raita. After eating lots of curry in...

I booked by email on Friday lunchtime, and had an email returned to say that I would get confirmation later. This still hadn't happened by the following lunchtime, so I left a message on the phone line to call me. The phone call or email was not returned, so a friend called and got through two hours before we wanted... More
