Place was really busy which is a good sign but we got a table nearly straight away. Can't speak highly enough of the food. If you like Indian food you will love it here. Menu is excellent and service very good and friendly. Nice decor and a great curry mile experience. Butter chicken is incredibly tasty and the lamb daas... More

This was my third visit, it's always really nice. It was really busy but the staff were really friendly and attentive despite being run off their feet. We ordered drinks and got a table after about 10 minutes. The food isn't your traditional Indian, hard to explain really, everything tastes really concentrated. Like a great curry left to for a...

This place is amazing.. atmosphere is great. The decor is good and different. The food is amazing, order a load of different dishes and have it all come at the same time and dig in like a tapas. The lamb chops are soooooo good.

I went with a group of colleagues, we ordered mixed appetizers and main meals and we shared. Everything was absolutely amazing, and the plates were big! Prices are average. Would definitely recommend it to everyone!

This was our first visit to this restaurant but it was really an underwhelming experience. For the price I expected better food, the mixed grill was nice but nothing fantastic and for the price charged I expected to get bigger portions. The main meal was just average. The restaurant has a nice ambiance but they really are charging inner London... More

Okay, I'll admit, everything I ordered was just amazing. My pals didn't get it quite as spot as I did but even so, their food was bloody good too. Not pretentious, great friendly service, helpful staff, extensive menu and oh such amazing food. I'm going back just as soon as I can get there!
