I can't actually believe how rude these people have been to both me and my wife. They put hidden charges on our bill and then were rude just because we told them about it. The food is average at best. if you are looking for a good indian restaurant in this area try monsoon.

We are sorry to hear about your experience, however if there was a problem with the bill, and staff were rude you should have asked to speak to management as this issue would have been resolved quickly. We also try and aim to serve flavoursome dishes, and again if unsatisfied, please don't hesitate to ask to speak to the manager. More

This restaurant has to get a 5/5, food is great and so is the service, i loved the bubble tanks and all the refurbishment done to the restaurant after previous visits, it is a nice feel when you are having your meal.

Food is very oily, under seasoned and lacking any wow factor. Its very average, OK for a takeaway but disappointing for a meal in. Which is a shame because it's quite a nice restaurant. After three experiences here we've decided better is available locally. I had a vegetable korai and it was just full of greasy tasting potato and over... More
