This local restaurant has been on our doorstep for years, and yet it took us until last week to try it. Food standard is very good generally, however my partner found hers somewhat oily. The staff were excellent and very friendly. The only thing I would say is that the decor is a bit tired and could do with a... More

I feel sort of bad for rating this place poor as I have had some lovely meals in here before, but the last time I had some dodgy chicken. Puking and pooing for ages.

I always order my take-away curries from here and I have never been disappointed. Good food at reasonable prices. My favourite dish is the Mango Chicken Delight with Garlic Rice. I would highly recommend it! I also come here on a regular basis with my drama group after we've performed a show at The Palace next door, and everyone is... More

Aweful, just bloody aweful. Everything was swimming in oil, alot of oil, apart from the Birianna which had Chicken so dry we were almost unable to swallow it. The Jalfrezi was like nothing ive ever seen or tasted before...being tastless with no spice and full of oil. The Spinach and lentil side dish was just a container full of oil... More

So myself and my partner went and choose this place purely as it was late, close and because we could use our taste card here. We rang and checked and went within ten minutes. Parking is a bit of a nightmare as situated along the London road by the palace theatre, but we got sorted in the end. We was... More

I have visited this restaurant a couple of times in recent years. A very friendly run restaurant with attentive waiting staff. Great food we had the chicken shashlic main as as starter for two. This arrived hot and sizzling with plenty of onions/green peppers and was a great starter. My wife had a prawn curry for her main dish this... More

Want some good traditional Indian food at a decent price? This is the place! We came as a whole family and thoroughly enjoyed our meal: from non spicy dishes for my seven year old to great curries for the rest of us. Friendly service and good food: couldn't ask for anything more!

After our last visit to the theatre, we decided as this restaurant was a few doors from the Palace we would try it. In short, the food was really nice. However, I chose the Prawn Puri which is a great favourite of mine. Sadly, every Prawn that was in this dish, had the intestinal track in it..... the poo line... More

Go here regularly with my family and always thoroughly enjoy the meal. The food is delicious and flavoursome. The Shashlick is particularly beautiful. The Sunday special buy one get one on starters main courses and rice makes it super reasonable too. Definitely recommend for a good curry/Indian.

This is my regular Indian for takeaway's and eat ins. Food is always lovely and the service is really good. Definitely recommend the Harry Murch chicken, Chicken Nagi and the vindaloo. My other half loves their Biryani's. Restaurant also accepts taste cards!
