Went to this restaurant for my birthday meal. The staff are very polite and welcoming. We were looked after whilst we waited for a table and the food after ordering was brought to our table very quickly and was absolutely delicious. We will definitely be going there again! Thank you to all the staff.

Visited with a business colleague who also commented on the quality and flavour. This is my 'local' Indian restaurant and I have had hundreds of meals here, from takeaway to family groups of 20. Superb every time. If you want to sample how Indian cuisine should be then here is the place you need to go.

Ive been coming here with family and friends for years. The food is always great and the staff are always smiling and polite. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Its also a great spot to go for a meal before going for a few beers in town.

From the moment you walk in you can relax in the knowledge that you will be looked after by the lovely staff. They really can't do enough for you. I had the Lamb tikka masala, peshwari naan, rice and mixed veg bhaji (way too much so i had it all packed away and took it home). My son had the... More

We were seated in a large comfy booth and served quickly. Food tasted great and there was a good choice for kids. Staff were attentive but not overbearing. Nice atmosphere too so will definitely be going back.
