Tonight was a Friday night and we arrived with no booking and got the last table at the time, but apparently they also have another area that you enter from the rear with another 7 tables. It is BYO alcohol and there is a bottleshop directly across the street. They were very busy tonight and our courses took a little... More

All dishes we ordered were very tasty. We liked the paratha bread with paneer, the butter chicken, and the paneer main dish.

Stumbled upon this restaurant by accident and were delighted to find there is a lovely courtyard area at the back as well as inside dining. Sat in the courtyard as it was a very pleasant evening. We had a mixed platter plus an extra serve of samosas for entrees between the four of us. For mains we shared a chicken... More

We ordered take away meals on 2 occasions. The service was prompt, the food ready when expected. The curries were very good and very spicy which was what we ordered. Quite often take always are reluctant to make hot, spicy dishes, this place is the exception. Take always in England don't often meet these standards.

The Onion bhaji starter was small stodgy balls reheated to a tepid warm and had a horrible taste mainly of overpowering cumin/coriander seeds and nothing else. We had chicken kadhai which was tasteless and I didn't eat it. We forgot to order rice and we were not asked if we wanted any so the meal came without rice. Aloo paratha... More

Not much to look at from outside and the front dining room is small but the yard at the rear is quiet and sheltered. It could do with a few more screens to define it from the house....but the food was really good and worth the not so posh décor. Friendly prompt service and generous serves made up for any... More
