Came in tonight with a group of friends for a catch up. Food and service was great. They had a Freddy Mercury tribute singer on, highly entertaining. Staff were very helpful and chatty. Will definitely call in again.

I discovered this place recently and I keep coming back; some times with colleagues/friends some times with family. Food is great, the atmosphere is brilliant and the staff is very friendly. It is usually very busy but the staff manages to give a personal service to everyone. They regularly organise charity dinners and give all the takings to local charities... More

We went here last night for a meal with my boyfriend and friend and we had a fantastic meal. The portions were very good and the flavours were fantasic. The staff were very friendly and we got a drink each on the house which was very nice.

Visiting son at Lancaster Uni and booked this restaurant for Saturday night. We arrived early and it seemed very chaotic, we could not find anyone to check in with as they were all too busy. A huge restaurant, which didn't have the intimacy or atmosphere of most Indian restaurants. Service very average and hurried and the food also was very... More

From time to time Pat and I go here for an Indian meal and it is a lovely converted barn with a comfortable atmosphere and very courteous staff. A good selection of food and drinks as well as a takeaway service which we sometimes use but would rather dine in here. We have never been disappointed with our meals and... More

We went here due to really good TripAdvisor reviews. Booking was easy and nice reception, but even though we'd booked and the restaurant was empty we were asked to wait in the waiting area, which was fine although a little weird. Anyway, what I did found awkward was we were asked to place our full order in the waiting area... More
