Found this location after looking for nearby restaurants during a family trip.Parking spot outside the venue was available as we booked early but there isn't many spaces. There is a paid car park across the road however. As we went early, it wasn't busy but after our visit I can imagine it can get very busy. For food we started with a King Sizzler for two that we shared with kids. Great selection but didn't find there was much flavour on the Malai Tikka or the Paneer. Despite this the grill itself was ok and on a bed of cabbage which was unusual to any other grill I've been to but nice. For mains ordered a Lamb Tikka for the kids and a Prawns Chettinand along with Garlic Naan. Both dishes were nice with a unique flavouring. The prawns dish especially was nice and spicy. Dropped a star on the atmosphere as we weren't there whilst it was busy so couldn't give a full 5, but with the background music and service from the staff no complaints here 👌🏽

We got a takeaway, I had the butter chicken, which was really nice, but spicier than the one I am used to from our regular place in London, but it was nice, I'll check out the Korma next time! Peshwari nan was lovely, not had cherries before, but it was amazing, the other half loved his curry. We didn't have long to wait and the staff were lovely. Will definitely be back, but will eat in next time. I do find the name a bit odd though 🤔

Lovely restaurant to eat in as well as good delivery service. Each meal uses authentic spices and tastes wonderful. The lamb I had tonight melted in my mouth.

What can I say, except wow. New owner with 5 star chefs. I'm very fussy about my tika masala, but the sauce is exceptional, as well as the tandoori starter for two. Absolutely divine. Thank you, Josh, and all the wonderful staff you have. Thoroughly recommend this Restaurant.
