We came here just for a light snack, but found ourselves pretty full. The portions are large and very good.

Enjoyed our meal which included bhajees, and the Kashmiri chicken and venison mushroom curries. We ordered medium heat which was not as spicy as expected however they were both very flavoursome and the venison in particular quite complex. Service was efficient and friendly.

Discovering this restaurant dethroned my long term Indian restaurant to become my most frequented eatery. All the dishes are amazing, prices are extremely reasonable (even more so when ordering take away). The Chicken Makhani, Chicken Tikka (starter) and Bahjees (starter)are strongly recommended.

Decided to go to Arjee Bhajee for a takeaway dinner; I'm afraid there wasn't much to it. As a huge fan of Indian food I was left underwhelmed. My lamb saag was good but my partner's kashmiri chicken was very bland. It is described as...More

This was our second visit to this restaurant and our first for dinner. It was good choice. Menu is limited but that is not a bad thing as dishes were a mixture of traditional and innovative. Food was well cooked and very well presented. We...More
