Even my partners Rogan josh was hot ? We both had upset stomachs that night and my tongue was burnt and I only... More

You might as well get a jar of Pataks paste and chuck it into a wok with some chicken and veg. It would be a lot cheaper and probably taste better.

This was our second visit here in the last 6 months and both times we have received a really warm welcome and excellent food. The menu has lots to offer with varied specialities not usually found in... More

Stay away from the taste of india, its over priced and sizes of the meals are poor with hardly any meat. Food is bland now and even after asking for my food to come (hot) is was barely even mild. Stay away

Takeaway delivery was wrong, no pickle tray to go with poppadoms. One main dish missing. After a phone call and 30 minute wait got the missing items. Poppadoms tasted stale and pickle tray was very disappointing. Main courses didn't have any flavour even though we had a madras sauce. Shame we used to love the Sunday Buffet.

We came mid-week for a lovely family meal out. They've made the restaurant cosy and stylish, I love the decoration with the saris on the wooden beams. The food was just delicious, we all came away full and happy! Apparently they do some sort of deal on Wednesdays so we will be back soon.

A group of us visited this restaurant for a birthday celebration a few days ago. We'd been several times before and always had great food and service in a wonderful atmosphere. This time the atmosphere wasn't so good - the restaurant in somewhere in the middle of a refurbishment and gone were all the lovely ornaments and curtains (and especially... More

Food was fine. However; visited this establishment after pre-booking a group for 10 people (well in advance for a business function). Only to find out that is was 'cash only'. They had every opportunity to contact us to advise - but didn't. Not the best experience.

This establishment used to be superb, but. from a combination of having been fined, for illegal Bangladeshis, losing the best bar girl they ever had, and banning people for no reason,and generrally having no interest in the village, they are leaving. So Bye Bye. Hope the new owner understands a few hundred years of our village history and I wish... More
