If you're looking for delicious curry, served with a smile, this is the place to go. The atmosphere is laid back and relaxed, and the service is attentive and helpful.

Simple good and tasty curry. I had the Hyderabadi coconut lamb curry with rice and tandoori naan. The ornate metal chairs is memorable for their weight and attention to detail. The latter does not distract from the goodness of the curry

Really good, authentic curry. Great and extensive menu, allow lots of time for reading, tons of vegetarian options and it's easy to see what's hot and what's not, all at a glance. Service was great and welcoming, making for Special night.

The food was very ordinary and tasteless. Even dishes like paneer and daal was not cooked poorly. Service was poor. Not recommended.

The food is amazing, and the host is a charming man from India, whose passion it is to ensure you enjoy your food. I have eaten there many times, and every time, I have had a wonderful experience. True Indian cuisine!

Having read the reviews I did wonder whether it would be a nice experience but overall it was good. Plenty of choice for all curry lovers. The food was delicious. Service was good the only negative was having to wait to get a member of staff's attention so i could pay the bill at the end .

Thank julie4240
