Went in as a family with children.. Food was AMAZING!!! We are Pakistani heritage, and always find it hard to find a decent Indian restaurant in an area with less Asian population. We were actually blown away by the taste! Excellent service, lovely Restaurant! The Chai was delicious too! Definitely recommend it!!

A hidden gem and perhaps the best Indian I’ve ever had! We came in for a takeaway, and ordered some drinks from the friendly waiter while we waited the 20 minutes it took for our food to be ready. The restaurant has lovely ambiance so it was a pleasant wait on the sofas. When the food was brought out we were given a couple of dips as a free extra (mango chutney and mint yoghurt). Everything we ordered tasted fresh, homemade, and had the perfect herbs and toppings to compliment the flavours. Would really recommend and a place like this deserves to be bustling with customers, thank you for a very enjoyable meal!

Had a fantastic takeaway from here last night and decided to visit the restaurant this evening. The welcome, service, food presentation, quality, flavours and value for money were all superb. Thank you.

Myself and my partner came to eat last night, we had 2 curry’s (chicken korma and a chicken madras) both really tasty! Naan bread was good too not too thick or doughy! I recommend the starters, (chilli chicken and chilli beef) could have had that as a main, was really tasty! The customer service was brilliant, (our waiter was really sweet and welcoming. didn’t catch his name, he had braces and maybe in his early 20’s.. lovely boy!). Really liked the seating arrangements and the colours. I also loved how joshy (the manager/owner) came and spoke to us to make sure we were ok and we had a nice chat.
