We visited your restaurant on 26/03/17 having booked a table for 8pm. We were late about 12 minutes to be precise. On arrival we were told our table had been given away to another family. Our contact details were with the restaurant should they call us to clarify. I did attempt to call however there was no answer to inform... More

The worst experience at an Indian restaurant I have ever encountered. Went for a family meal on a Sunday mid afternoon so we had missed the rush hour. We were given the smallest table for three people. Even though other tables were free. I had to call the staff over to request drinks, to chase the starters , to ask... More

Food is ok and at best average. Over priced. This use to be a superb place to eat with authentic and distinct flavours to all their dishes but not it all pretty much taste the same. A lot of other places to go in the area at a fraction of the cost. What happened Brilliant? Charging Fine dining prices for... More

Four of us went to Southall last night, to experience a wonderful northern Indian meal. The food was excellent, and there were many vegetarian dishes on the menu. The meal was a very reasonable price considering we had beer and wine. The service was very good, with the waiter, being very attentive. The presentation was also very good. We would... More

From the initial welcome to the final flavours of the beautiful carrot dessert were experiences that remain with you. Dipna and her Dad run this great restaurant in Southall and keep to original recipes and flavours. The chutneys are a must and chef Jaz is very passionate about his menu and being true to authentic Indian flavours. The waiting staff... More

Food was good, but to be honest tasted just like some Indian restaurants. We started with the butter chicken. Not very saucy, and a little bland for my tastes...was picking out gristle and bone out of every bite, but I ate it and found it's flavor to be brought out more with some of the side sauces they brought out...

We visited here with a large group of 15 after hearing this place was recommended by Gordan Ramsey. He must have ate in here years ago as this was the most boring curry I have ever had. No flavouring on the king prawns, everything was bland. The place was also pretty dirty, the floor needed a good mop & the... More
