Was really excited to visit given all the hype. Starters came out and we enjoyed each bite. Mains we were sure were going to even more so. Not the case. Out of the 4 dishes ordered, nobody had the same enthusiasm. Not sure if just...More

Best Indian cuisine ever!! Can’t wait to go there again. Super advise the vegetarian platter, chefs choice. And the butter naan.

Nice surroundings and pleasant welcoming staff. The food is pedestrian offering standard unappetising curries, for instance the chicken tikka. The sauces are too creamy and bland. The battered spinach was simply too greasy with no distinctive flavour, more of a gimmick. It might be a...More

Curry aficionados - at least from the UK - will be happy with the excellent choice of good curries, but should not expect Bradford, Leicester or Brick Lane prices. The wine list is pure Franschhoek and being here, you might even fancy wine, unlike in...More

We had a delicious meal here at the end of January. Bruce looked after us wonderfully. The food and service were great. Bruce's recommendations were spot on and there was a good wine selection. Great quality and a definite fine dining experience. Chic setting.
