The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. The guests are all seated in discreet areas which give the impression of being in a private cubicle. Traditional Indian food is served by friendly staff who will advise the novices. All the dishes are prepared to the highest...More

This restaurant served really good food at a reasonable price. A pleasant atmosphere and excellent service. The only criticism was the draft Kingfisher was a bit dodgy.
