The worst food of the century.... Nothing nearer to to Indian food. The Manager/ owner is a RACIST (being himself from Asia) and was told he will never serve any Asian because we walked off after eating the stale food and he got upset that we did not eat mains. Had an audacity to shout in front of my wife... More

I find this quite a difficult review to write as the whole experience was very inconsistent. We were welcomed by a very irate customer who had driven to the restaurant complaining of a £50 order delivered wrongly, so with our floor show over a waiter eventually sauntered over to our table note book in hand ready to take our order...

We booked a table a few weeks in advance and our party of 8 was seated quickly. Poppadoms were offered promptly but we were a bit worried when they were nearly finished and still no one had taken our drinks or food order! A bit of arm waving worked and drinks were ordered and arrived in dribs and drabs. More... More

It was a good job I noticed banner saying all food half price when I saw the menu prices.. I don't think they need this gimic... chicken tikka jalfezi was just right and a large portion wife's prawn Korma wasctasty and again large portion. Sundries too were tasty. Beer was reasonable price. Worth a visit.
