Really impressed with the food here. Very different to other Indian cuisine i have tried but really good. Not sure about the water feature thou as quite noisy & gives off quite a cold chill in the air. Will sit at the front of the restaurant next time to avoid it.

Picked Rajpoot from previous reviews and boy we were not disappointed. Struck by number of staff but it produced quick, efficient service. Menu seemed pricey but the food was fabulous - best Indian I've had in a long long while - the tastes, textures and portion sizes were all good. Complementary papadums capped it off nicely.

I had the Seafood Curry Saturday night it arrived with 4 closed Mussels. I returned the dish as you don't eat Mussels that have been cooked and don't open, they are not edible.

Booked here for birthday meal for my mum. Staff as ever were very attentive, efficient and helpful. My wife is very allergic to onion which has never been a problem here before. Unfortunately, the waiter told her she could only have a couple of items on the menu as the rest all had onion. Not the end of the world... More

Very well presented, naan cut to manageable portion sizes. Husband felt his jalfreezi could have been hotter. Our 3 companions happy with their meals. The key lime cheesecake however was warm, but cold in the middle. And the staff were a bit dour for my taste, all but one of them.

Went out here for a meal for two on a Sunday evening before the cinema. Service was quick and polite and food excellent. Although I have had cheaper curries and a wider selection on the menu, the choice was good not extortionate. Would definitely go back again.

Haven't been for a few years but the quality of the food and menu variety were great. Beware the fairly large portions but don't miss the seafood starters - delicious. If you are looking for an Indian restaurant with a difference then look no further!

Meal for 5 and we all sampled different starters and mains. Every dish was excellent lovely and fresh gorgeously spicy and aromatic. The drinks were also very reasonably priced and the Tempranillo red wine was a delicious accompaniment. All in all excellent meal.

What amazing food. I had the Old Delhi Chicken and it was absolutely to die for. My colleagues had other dishes and commented on how good they were too. Service is friendly but not over baring. But food is the reason to visit. Lovely.
