We ordered 50 poppadoms for 14 people and were hit with a bill of over £36. On querying this, the numpty in charge, who really needs to learn to speak English properly, insisted that poppadoms were 60p each (a rip off) and that the accompanying sauces and onions were extra. Sneaky, duplicitous, underhanded and the sort of behaviour that garners... More

The venue is upstairs but there is disabled access. We were welcomed the moment we arrived and throughout the evening were attended to promptly. The staff could not have been more helpful. The food was excellent, with traditional choices as well as more adventurous items. Starters were quite large - we could have managed smaller portions better. If you are... More

Since the demise of Mazza's, this has been our go-to Curry Restaurant. It never disappoints. We were there last night and the food and service was nothing short of superb (again!). There's something very special about the food - it is always freshly cooked and the presentation is a treat for the eye too! A superb experience all-round. Thank you!!!

We took our grandchildren out for an evening meal here. The entrance on the street is not inviting with an "A" board on the pavement that has seen better days and had a hand drawn alteration on it. Not a promising start. The stairlift on the stairs was out of order which did not affect us but could be a... More

First visit to this restaurant as I heard a few people rave about it we thought we would give it a try. First impressions on this Tuesday night was how quiet the restaurant was, only 2 other tables and us at 7.30pm. The restaurant looked very clean and bright, we were given a table by the window which turned out... More

Great food friendly staff - slightly odd decor but well worth a visit. We went on a Saturday night without booking and thought we would be disappointed as it was very full but they found us a space and the food was excellent.
