Everyone needs a good local curry house. This is not it. Every dish we ordered was absolutely swimming in oil to the point where it was making me feel queasy - this included Chicken Korai, Chana Masala, Cauliflower ... the peshwari naan had a pool of oil sitting on top. The chicken tasted processed. We won't be back.

Previously ordered a takeaway from there with no worries, now second time round am told that lots of the food [that I ordered last time] is cooked with ghee. Yes, even the vegetarian dishes. This is annoying, as I previously ate the food and was told this was cooked without ghee. So did I eat ghee previously or not -... More

This was always a really special restaurant to visit, the food was always exquisite and although slightly more pricey than other places it was well worth it. HOWEVER, Saturday's visit has changed all that. I feel really let down and was treated rudely when I mentioned it. I will not return and do not recommend it. To be fair, the... More

We have used this restaurant many times, but yesterday would be our last visit. The food has gone from very good to simply average but what really stands out is the apalling service. It is not acceptable to switch all the lights on full blast like some nightclub wanting you to leave, we weren't the last table clearly the staff... More
