It was our 3rd attempt to get a table and were looking forward to our first curry in sometime. The menu was ok although nothing really exciting about it but that can often be a positive thing. There were a couple new to us and...More

We were persuaded to try this by family visiting us from Chester. Faultless service, delicious dishes, well presented and full of flavour were a real surprise. Cosy atmosphere too. Only criticism was that none of them were piping hot. We'll definitely go back..

First came here about 20 years ago. Googled online and found a website. Booked a table via the website. The only menu on the website was for take away but I looked at the prices and they seemed very reasonable. I did not hear back...More

If you are tired at the end of a long day this place has good solid walls to lean on whilst your food arrives...lamb chops recommended for starter, main course and dessert.

Visited for dinner with friends as our favourite Masala Gate, in St. Pancras, has closed. A rather tatty interior of this old toll cottage, with torn fabric on the chairs and the floor under our table littered with food scraps. It all felt rather unloved....More
