Haven't been here in a while, but went last weekend with friends and it still remains a great value for money place - 6 of us with a bill of £48!!! Food nice and plentiful, a stalwart restaurant of Northampton!

Food is very good and cheap..basic surroundings but very pleasant. The staff are always very polite and efficient. The food is as good as much more expensive places..if not better. Have the balti dishes with a naan..brilliant. Take your own alcohol as well... Great night out.

first time visit. thought I would try Sunday lunch buffet.. very good value for price...!.... bring your own booze, which saves you money.. all in all, you get what you pay for.... not expensive..no thrills... food was good, but service not so.... I will definitely go back....

Booked a table for 14 people. Friends birthdays ruined by these fools. Called in over 3 times. When we arrived no table reserved and staff claimed we had not booked. Ended up waiting over 3 hours for a meal and staff did not seem to care. Would not come back to this place again. Would not even discount the poppadoms... More

I cannot fault this place at all. It's consistently great here and it's so cheap! £50 bill in total for 7 people?! The portion sizes are also generous so you leave often not being able to finish your meal. Will keep returning!

We have been going for 20 plus years, and thats because it is soooo good. The prices are excellent, and the food is always great, fresh and well cooked. Bring your own alcohol or even soft drinks keeps this to a budget, but not at a price where the food is compromised. In 20 years we had one ropey dinner,... More

Watery curry. Chicken secreted an obviously injected flavouring when I cut it open. Lamb had a small bone in it. Naan was obviously not cooked fresh. Rice wasn't too bad. I really dislike paying for food I could cook better myself. Thus this review. If you like a good curry, avoid.
