Was attracted by the $12 early bird deal. Couldn't eat most of my meal.. Didn't enjoy it. And felt ill after. Won't go back.

Placed a take away order for 1/2 Tandoori chicken, chicken saagwala (chicken in spinch), naans and rice. Tandoori chicken was raw from inside. They use food colouring in Saagwala instead of actual spinch. All naans were raw from the middle. Owner/chef had total disregard of the feedback when called. Put the food in a bin. Completly waste of money and... More

My friend and I enjoyed an authentic Indian meal today 22/3/16. Starter consisted of chicken tikka and vegetable samosa followed by butter chicken, Handi beef curry accompanied by garlic naan and free saffron rice. YUM BYO with no corkage charge which was a great bonus. Plus you get to take away any leftovers!
