The menu covers a wide range and the dishes served are of the highest quality. We arrived late for our booking on a very busy evening and were seated very quickly , there was a little wait between courses ,... More

Booked for evening meal on a Monday. Very quiet, staff very attentive. Food not special but adequate and fair value. Apart from the food hard to detect any Indian influence (staff were white British), but guess that is what sells in seaside resorts nowadays.

Thick Balti sauce, good amount of tasty Tikka and included either a naan bread or rice in the price. I had the Naan, which was both parts crispy and fluffy just as I like. My wife had a Thali which... More
