I had heard good things about this place but we only went because, on a Monday night, everywhere else seemed to be closed. However I am so glad we did. I took my Australian visitors and they were also very impressed. The menu is extensive covering Indian classics and the chef's own specialities. I Started with peanut xchicken satay with... More

Myself and my partner went for the early bird menu - 1 starter + 1 main and appetiser for £11 (see website for timings and menu). The portions were just about right for me (and I eat a lot). We got the mixed starter for two people which was beautiful. The bhaji's were especially good. For a main I had... More

We mourned the loss of Balooshai from the town centre and never found a satisfactory replacement, so we've now starting making the 'effort' of a 10-15 minute drive for us to their place in Honley, as opposed to the 5 minutes it took us into the town centre. This hardship is no hardship at all when you get to appreciate... More

Best Indian food in the area although the starter was only average. Main course very good. Service average. Good parking. We found discerpancies in charges with the same dish having different prices. This wazs corrected without a fuss.

We visited here last Friday for the first time with some friends. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our table. Drinks and poppadoms were served whilst we perused the extensive menu. Our friends always have the Sexy Mushrooms so we had to try them too, beautiful fresh mushrooms in a delicate creamy sauce served with mini naan breads –... More

Out with work, quite a large party.. service was very good.. the head waiter (I think) was especially attentive. Once ordered food did take a while to arrive at the table but when it did it was nice and hot. There was a bit of an issue with my meal - so I have marked my rating down based on... More

Regularly get the take out deal for around £17 here, it feeds 4 adults although we do get an extra naan and a rice. Lovely food and lovely staff.

Cracking spot. Called on a Monday night for a quick eat and it was better than expected. Service a bit slow but food brilliant. Recommend the Lamb Khara Massalla.

Had a family birthday party here with 18 guests for food. Food was fine but nothing special. However the bar man (who I think was the owner) repeatedly added either a £5 or £10 to the price of our rounds. When you're buying a round of 8-12 drinks you don't always realise. I would count your change too!
