Dined here with a group of 20 and the staff seemed overwhelmed.Waiter told customers everyone is having appetizers, although that was not true,and discouraged desserts. Reason seemed to be the desire to have everyone divide the check evenly. Missing gracious and hospitality. And the lamb kebob was tough

I came here with a colleague while staying at a local hotel on business. It was thankfully open on a Monday night, understandably quiet - there were free poppadoms (only 1 between 2, I'd have preferred to pay more for 2). We had a mixed starter, it was very nice, but the main courses were a tad disappointing - both... More

Ate here with friends over Christmas. You'd easily walk past it on the street especially since it seems to do mainly takeaway trade but give it a try inside, trust me! My friends tried different set menu options and I had the korma with vegetable fried rice. What value! We all tried each others dishes, they were superb and we... More

I would highly recommend and... More

I would have given 5 stars if they used proper chicken meat in their dishes and not mechanically recovered compressed chicken. That is where most ethnic restaurants fall down.

as a fan of indian food, I was very pleased to eat here. The staff was very friendly, the prices reasonable and the dish not to hot but very delicious. Unfortunately this restaurant opens only at 5 PM otherwise I would have come back more often at lunchtime.

I'm a bit of an Indian food snob, so if you're not, by all means enjoy! I thought the food was fine, but not awesome. It's nice for something different if that's what you're looking for.

Whether it is take-away or eat in - Tulsi is the Indian to eat in. It serves high quality food in a warm and traditional environment. Every single dish I have tried is amazing, most of all the chicken tikka supreme which is a classic for the Indian cuisine. The staff is friendly and very good at explaining the different... More
