Really well-cooked Indian food. Great menu choice. The staff are good at advising our friends not used to Indian food of appropriate dishes. We eat (out) there a couple of times a month.

Really like this place, the decor and setting is a bit old fashioned and service can be slow when it is busy but the food is great, prices good and they are all so friendly

I have ate at the golden star quite often and weather its after a night out for some food or a sit in meal, it was always been great. The staff are friendly and are always up for a good chat. Couldn't recommend it more!
