Thought we try a different curry house as our usual one was busy. My wife and I were astound at the service which was below poor, staff were unhelpful.and somewhat abrupt. We left before ordering and won't be visiting again.

Went on a Saturday night and would definitely recommend booking as it is not a huge restaurant and it was packed at 8pm when we arrived. Once shown to our table our order for both drinks and food was taken promptly. As we were not having starters other than poppadom’s and chutneys we were advised that it would be a... More

Never had a bad meal at this restaurant. Staff are very friendly and the food was again superb. We had to wait a little while for our food as the restaurant was extremely busy but we didn't mind as it was piping hot and very tasty when we got it. Portion sizes are just right. Can't wait to go back.

Rosh and his friendly staff always serve a fantastic meal and make you feel so welcome. You must try the Naga paste, got but bursting with flavour.

Table was booked for 20:00 so we arrived 10 minutes early to decorate the table as this was for a anniversary. Are table wasn't made available until 20:05 and as people were sitting down the staff were still moving tables, chairs and tea clothes. All staff were very rude upon entry to the point where words were nearly said and... More
