The food was good without being amazing. For a meal out in a socailly distanced restaurant it was VERY noisy. The staff were abrupt bordering on rude and it took forever to get them to take payment for the meal. Wouldn't book here again. Also over priced. So many places to eat, I would choose somewhere else in future.

Booked this place as everywhere else was busy...our waiter was really awful...I asked for mixed Pakora to share and he didn't know what that was, we ended up with 4 small pieces of pakora to share. When asked for Garlic chilli naan bread he said we couldn't have that!! My husband ordered a lamb madras, it was so salty it was almost inedible.

The food was delicious, and quite prompt with service. However, as a family restaurant there is no children’s menu or options. The waiter who served us was incredibly grumpy and not particularly helpful regarding orders. And there’s a service charge of 10% added to the bill which I didn’t think was warranted. Food lovely, good location shame about staff and prices

Excellent food and a nice restaurant, but it was very busy and the staff seemed a bit disorganised and table service was slightly slow.

My partners chicken was pink inside, so it was replaced without any fuss. Good meal but it was very busy and a little bit tight to other tables.
