Arrived at 8pm and took until 8:45 for our order to be placed. Regardless of very slow service, food was excellent.

We booked in here as soon as we arrived, as the last twice we have stayed in this area, we gave had lovely meals here. Tonight was the same. Friendly, attentive service and deliciously freshly prepared Indian dishes that stray away from the norm. Only downside is the frozen desserts and filter coffee. Would recommend.

A fab Indian restaurant run by a 'Yorkshire' family. Food was fantastic - husband loved his dansak, he thought it was the best he had tasted in a long time. I had one of their signature dishes which was tasty and well presented. Defiantly not a run of the mill Indian restaurant. Service was impeccable, restaurant was spotless, and well... More

Booked a table of 4 for myself, fiancé and parents. They were really busy so we were late getting seated, however the staff were so apologetic and were all so attentive and pleasant during our meal.

The food was amazing - really good Biryani and chicken tikka masala. We had one dish that was chicken stuffed with lamb and it was good but probably wouldn't order it again. The service was really good.

We've eaten here before and it was excellent. This time we had a Take Away and it was every bit as good as in the restaurant.

Had a meal here for the first time recently, very nice and tasty, portion size was just right, sometimes a meal in an Indian restaurant can be a tad too large. My only gripe was being charged £3.50 for a glass of soda water and lime, bit much for what it is.
