    The food here is both interesting and of excellent quality served in a style resembling a fine dining restaurant. The service is very good indeed, we particularly appreciated the waiter explaining the menu to us in detail and giving us the benefit of his knowledge. Price-wise it is a little more expensive than a more traditional "curry house" but I think the standard of the food justifies the price. The restaurant is quite small and suits smaller groups, we had a table for 5 people and it did feel a little overcrowded but that is the only negative I can offer, otherwise this is an excellent restaurant.

    It's a great restaurant, exceptional food, nice atmosphere, polite, fast service. Fish and prawns amritsari is the best thing on the menu in my opinion. Pork cheek vindaloo is also great too. We're very fortunate to live near it but it's worth a trip.

    Uninspiring location and decor, but fantastic food. Authentic Indian flavours. Not your normal curry restaurant experience......

    I’ve been here quite a few times and always had delicious food and yesterday was no exception. The stone bass is superb and I love all the starters especially the beetroot tiki, samosas, lamb cutlets- I could go on. We had a lovely bottle of montepulciano d’abruzzo. I am lucky that this just down the road from me.

    Really special Indian restaurant with a particularly special range of starters that I have never come across before. I would recommend putting together your own tasting menu just using the starters and tikkas. Must book.
