We ordered ten taster dishes to share between us, with naan bread, rice etc. The prices are reasonable and the service is excellent. We arrived early evening to miss the queues and unusually no one else was waiting for us so we were able to...More

Lovely prepared homemade food that suits everyone's tastes. Very reasonably priced and great sized portions. Only downside is that it's just a little cramped inside but that's being picky. Will be a regular from now on.

Visited here on a Wednesday lunch time, and still needed to wait for a table (not that long and well worth the small wait). Food and service was excellent would recommend you try this place if you like authentic Indian food.

This place had delicious Indian food. The menu was very limited compared to other restaurants especially Indian food places. The food we were served was tasty and well prepared. The portions are on the smaller side so be mindful of that as you order.

The tapas style for traditional Indian food is a great concept. The staff know their menu and were very willing to advise. Wide range of dishes and the quality was superb. The atmosphere was great and we really enjoyed our evening out.
