Been here a few times and never disappoints. Inventive and original food. The veggie options are also really special and will convert any meat eaters. The pre theatre menu is great value and they have high chairs for little ones. Result!!

We really enjoyed our meal here. The food was simply lovely, really good quality. The atmosphere was quaint and relaxed and the service was excellent. Would recommend to anyone wanting to try really good indian food that is a cut above the rest.
