Looked this up on Tripadvisor before visiting. Nice surroundings, service and food. Goan fish curry was tasty as was the prawn Karahi. The poppadom and pickle were a little disappointing all of it came out of a bottle. There was no freshly chopped onion pickle and no texture to the food. You get some complimentary snacks but they are tasteless.

I have been a professional chef for 28 years. I can honestly say I have never tasted Indian food as good as this. The execution and level of flavours and textures is outstanding. The chef is one very talented man. The staff from the greeting at the door until the asking for our bill "brilliant" we felt looked after with... More

Delicious food, could have been more choice though. The onion and spinach bhajis were delicious. Only complaint is the cost of the drinks. Otherwise a great place to go, but you need to book on the weekend.

The staff were very welcoming, and they provided excellent service. The food was amazing. To start we shared onion bhajia and chicken patakia. For main I had the chicken karahi and my partner the sindhi. There are... More
