Went here on a business dinner following a recommendation. Overall the food was pretty good - not sure why but I half expected it to be less spicey than the equivalent in the UK, but it wasn't - it was pretty well spiced and the hot ratings on the menu are accurate and genuine. I did find the lack of... More

So disappointing - no tandoori available, no naan bread. Communication was difficult but I managed to order a chicken tikka... or so I thought. I thought I'd be safe with something simple like this...not so :( It came covered in the similar sweet sickly currywurst sauce which is just not right when you're expecting a delicious succulent chicken - maybe...

Disappointing. Starters were ok but main dishes were really bad. Unfortunately the cook seems to have no idea how to use Indian spices. All he added was a huge amount of red chilli powder. Not original and not tasty.

We went here with friends to have dinner and had a really good time. The meals were fresh and delicious, you can choose the level of spiciness and they have a good choice of drinks and wines. The staff was friendly throughout our stay and the interior is in modern and warm Indian design. It might not be the cheapest... More

Located near the Bermuda3eck (but on the other side!), this restaurant is fun with friends and family alike! With adjustable spiciness and a helpful staff, everything will be made to your liking. My only complaint - no naan!

We visited this restaurant about a week ago, and I was expecting something completely different. The prices are expensive (15-17€) for a chicken madras curry, they serve no nan bread. They also offer you different levels of "heat" in your curry (1-6, 6 being the spiciest) I told the waiter I wanted a 6 and he warned me that it... More

Arrived without a reservation, but despite how busy it was they found us a seat. Unfortunately it took 10 mins for them to take our order and over 40mins before we got our starter. It was clear that the one waitress to service the whole restaurant (seating, waitressing, cleaning, serving, answering the phone) was too much. Although we waited, i... More

I visited this restaurant during a business trip and it was some of the worst Indian food I have ever had. There was also no tandoor in the kitchen so they were not able to offer traditional authentic tandoori food or nan bread and the quality of what they did provide left a lot to be desired would not recommend...
