To start with after we got seated the waiter was rude and looked like they did not want to be there. They did not understand what i wanted to order and brang me the wrong drink! The starter was bland and definitely old. We waited...for a while for the food as they prioritized the takeaways!! We left extremely disappointed and the next day we even had a stomache bug. Will not be returningMore

Nice environment and good food but tonight service was slow and impersonal. This place can be so much better than it was tonight and food lacked authenticity

Indian food with a modern twist. Extensive menu of traditional dishes, and some with a more modern twist. Excellent food and service, ample portion sizes. Will be back

Best Indian food around, I had the halibut which was amazing, every time I’m in the area I always have to come here and am never disappointed.

This was the best Indian take out l can remember. We stopped by to order and as only staying two doors away the guy who took our order offered to bring it round when ready! We settled for him giving us a call when ready...which he did as promised after 30 minutes. We had chef’s specials, which I would recommend. Definitely a place to visit again when we are next back in Shaftesbury.More

A total winner. We love Indian food and are very picky but the food here was superb. Our waiter, a very English person, was on hand the whole time and very competent. I think he was leaving for pastures new, so good luck. We'll be...back though for sure!More

Exceptional food, service and atmosphere. Best Indian restaurant I have ever been too. I had the slow cooked lamb shank and it is still making my mouth water. Really lovely.
