We have been wanting to visit here for a while, so child free was an excuse. Much better decor than the normal Indian restaurant! But just a little to bright, the lighting could be turned down a bit. It wasn't very busy , about half full, so a table for 4 people would have been better as when the main... More

Usually for a takeaway but sometimes eat in. The staff make you feel welcome for either a takeaway or a dine in. The food is gorgeous and the restaurant is welcoming , modern and comfortable.

First time here at the Blue Sari - reasonably priced, great menu and knowledgeable and very helpful servers. Probably the best Onion Bhajis I've ever had. Delightful rural location.

10 of us gathered at the Blue Sari to celebrate a birthday. We were welcomed cheerfully and shown to our table which was nicely set up ready. The restaurant was extremely busy but we were soon settled with poppadums, dips and menus. Between us we ordered a wide range of different mains and side dishes. Not surprisingly we had quite...

We only started going there last year, though it isn't too far from home - the food is lovely, the owner is the chef I believe and the staff are friendly. It is a former pub (The Beehive) and there are plenty of tables covered with crisp white tablecloths. Took a friend there the other week as he is looking... More
