The waiters are rude, abrupt, off-hand, humourless, obviously hate their jobs and find customers an inconvenience. It's a shame because the food is good, but we were made to feel very unwelcome. We will not be returning.

We have not been to this restaurant for some time, we had not booked but we were soon found a table, the staff were still the same and we recognised a few familiar faces although much older! The staff were attentive and the food was good, the only mistake we made was to forget how big the portions are and... More

We have just been to this restaurant, it was to celebrate our grandsons 16th birthday organised by his mother. Although Indian is not our first choice when going out for a meal we both enjoyed the food, the service was excellent even though the restaurant was busy and our party consisted of around 40plus there was no complaints from us....
