Excellent reviews led to my wife & I visiting. The staff are all friendly and the location is pleasantly lively. However, the food was OK, but no more than that.

I have been living in Chester for over 5 years now, and had resigned myself to the fact that the local Indian restaurants were average at best. Until I ate here. Both the food and the service is incredible! I haven't been to another Indian restaurant since, as there is just no comparison. Amazing value for money!

It was a Tuesday evening and the place was already near to full and that was at 7pm. The food tasted excellent, even the rice dishes had a great flavour to them and by the sound of... More

The best curry house in Chester by far. Been 10 times or so now and haven't been disappointed. Can't fault it.

A very busy restaurant. We went without booking, there were 3 of us, but we were seated within 5 min. The food was delicious with very large portions. The service was excellent with very polite and unobtrusive staff. Definitely recommend a visit!
