I've been to this restaurant twice. The first time the food was average at best and the attitude of the staff was poor. The second time I didn't get to eat because they refused to serve my friend who is a wheelchair user - and they were also incredibly rude about it too. Avoid.

Turned away for being in a wheel chair or "push chair" as he called it. We understand it was a busy night, and knew there would be a wait for the right table. After speaking to one member of staff by the bar who said they have space and we will just need to use a different door to what... More

First of all, I have to say I have not had Indian food as good as this before. Everything is fresh, their sauce is delicious, there is always loads of meat in the curry and the portion sizes are enough for two meals! The staff are really friendly and lovely, but they do like to have a bit of banter... More

The staff here are very friendly, but almost too attentive. When eating your last mouthful your plate is whisked away from the table and the dessert menu thrust upon you before you have even had chance to swallow. I don't think I've ever felt so rushed in a restaurant before, which is not the feeling you want. And this is... More

Not been here for a long but following good feedback from friends thought we would give it another go. Food was was very average and the meat was very dry, naan bread black underneath, lack of spice in the curries and a lack of understanding / communication from the staff. I'll be sticking to mojo's in future !!

Having recently moved to Stone we have set about trying most of the restaurants here. I am extremely disappointed we left this one until last. The food was absolutely delicious and with a vast menu choice to select from. The staff were very pleasant and attentive and considering there were 14 of us who arrived without a booking the service... More
