When we was seated we was greeted by a nice young man called Zak who did look after us tbf. The plates and glasses are all plastic and there is no alcohol served... More

We had a very pleasant time here. The doorman is slightly excentic, but friendly. We had a short wait for our food as we were early. That said, service was quick and efficient. They serve food from India and China, all seemingly to a good standard. There were no complaints from our party of six. There are plenty of dishes... More

Worst door man. Booked a table for 7pm and waited 1 hour to be seated. On the plus side the waiters were nice, friendly and attentive.

When entering the Indian we were welcomed by a man who told us to wait by the door, as we waited he wondered off and pressed play on his CD player and came back and danced us to our seats, the strangest of welcomes. As for the food it was bang average just like the dancing of the geeza who... More

We visited here for a family get together, whilst the surroundings and the welcome were good the food was of poor quality, I was a chef for 13 years I should know. Not a great deal of choice and nothing spicy, me and my partner like spicy :-) canteen style food not done very well. Disappointed.
