    Fantastic! Chef Sanjay and his team timed our starters to arrive just as we entered. The duck seekh and keema were outstanding...after a long fought battle at Wisley, with the match going to the wire...the golfers needed this!!

    Excellent service and food as always. We were a table of 6 so had a selection of food but I would highly recommend the lamb chops and the monk fish along with the aubergine curry!

    Quite brilliant. Liked the south Indian dishes and the tandoori chops. Could consider some vegetable options?

    Restaurant was heaving on our arrival at 5:30pm which is always a good sign. Tandoori chicken went down extremely well. Wasn’t blown away by the chicken biriyani but still okay. Chettinadu chicken and lamb rogan sauces spicy but very tasty. Paneer tikka masala was excellent and cooled down the ‘spicy ness’ of other dishes. Pistachio kulfi & falooda for afters - different, not awful but slightly disappointing as all the other dishes were so tasty.

    It was a lovely small restaurant and one of our friends had allergies which Sanjay catered for and couldn’t of been nicer

    Welcoming staff. Pickle tray didn't have any mild items which was a shame. Mango lassi was very good. Food tasty. Portion size was fine for us. Only negative was that we were sat near the door and everytime it opened a cold draught came in.
