We had a vegetable starter platter, Lamb Rogan Josh and Tandoori Masala Chicken with Rogani naan bread. Every single dish was fantastic! Ambiance good, service great, will go back often.

Being English, I have a different idea of what Indian food is like. This wasn't what I expected but it was lovely, all freshly cooked and very tasty. The choice of meals on the menu wasn't very wide but the tandoori lamb chops were delicious. Could do with a bit more knowledge from the waiter about the menu.

Its been a while since our last visit, The flavour is still amazingly good, if not exceptional.Tonight the naan bread was inconsistent with one burnt bread. I will put this down to the busy time of year. The service was good, not great. The flavour in the food made up for any ills. Only the lamb cubes of meat was... More

Looked like a reasonable restaurant but was there as part of a conference so perhaps not a fair reflection. However, the buffet was poor - their idea seemed to be to provide as much sauce and as little substance in the main courses as possible. Then, when one of our party asked for a specific wine, they brought him something... More

The curry portions are quite big and i had to take a doggy bag. Best curry i have tasted in long time. If you like Indian food this is a must.
