Really tasty chicken tikka masala, maybe one of the best! Staff were fairly friendly, lots of choices for whatever you may fancy to eat. Interior is quite modern and bright.

Very very good food. Rang up for a table and they were able to seat all seven of us half an hour later. Generous portions and flavourful food. Thoroughly recommend.

Never a let down. Had a pretty heavy weekend and didn't eat much so absolutely nailed a madras - was much hotter to my frail state than usual. Loves it. Naans were hot and fluffy, special rice was a beast.

Arrived about 1830, and we're lucky to get a table. Service was quick, polite and efficient. Food was some of the best Indian curries I have tasted, would recommend all Asian cuisine lovers to visit here if they are in the locality. Scrumptious ( and the lamb Vindaloo was HOT)

This has to be the best Indian restaurant in the UK. Tonight's speciality was the Chefs Special Dupiaza. Hot but the most amazing flavours. The Soul Tree Shiraz was a great accompaniment.
