Well, after a previous poor dining experience at this restaurant I had said "never again". However, we met up with some friends who wanted to go to Guffa's so I went along with their request. How I wish I hadn't !! We went on a Friday evening and the restaurant was not even 1/3rd full - totally lacking atmosphere. Eventually... More

We have been regular customers of this restaurant since it first opened in Kings Hill. Throughout that time, we have seen the business expand and their prices soar, yet still we have continued to have both takeaways and restaurant meals. The food has almost always been great. We were there this weekend and we had a good meal then as... More

Living on Kings Hill, I hadn't been here for a few years having been disappointed previously. This time a small group of friends visited on a Thursday evening and we were all genuinely surprised by just how good the food was! The atmosphere was pleasant (as it wasn't too busy), the menu simple but varied, service attentive and it was... More

I had not been to this restaurant for a few years and was meeting up with old friends so was quite excited by the evening. When we arrived no one came to take us to a table and we waited for nearly 15 minutes until eventually we went up to someone and asked. Then we waited a good 20 minutes... More

My friend and I regularly have lunch here and have never been disappointed. The lunch menu is limited but this is because of the price, £7.95 for a starter and main course (including rice). Food is always good quality and portions are larger than you'd expect for the price. Staff are always friendly and attentive but not overly so. I... More

Our first visit and we were very impressed. The whole place exudes a warm welcome and top notch experience. Attentive staff and service at just the right level and timing. The food was excellent and we enjoyed a leisurely meal without any sense of pressure in any way. High recommended

Our starters had more salad on the plate than ordered items. We were even charged for chutneys as well as the poppadoms we ordered. The restaurant itself is beautiful with some authentic features shame the food couldn't live up to that accolade!!!

A good indian restaurant but a little expensive. The staff are friendly but you can sometimes wait a while especially at weekends.

I have been a regular here since it opened in the original building and then onto the refurb when it took over Mckenzies/Hurricane. From the start the service and food have been top notch and all my friends have loved dining here..a fab place! However, since it opened in the 'bigger restaurant the personal service has slowly gone downhill. All... More
