Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had an amazing Family meal here on Sunday night. With a family group of 14 I was worried if they could cope as the place was already full when we arrived for our 6.30 booking. Food was delicious, very authentic, timely and we all got...what we ordered. Two of our party that are based in the USA and very well-traveled took the time to tell the owner it was best Indian they had outside India. All in all we could not fault them and will definitely be going back.More

Oh wow, what a find. My husband and I had a fantastic meal here. Hubby had been craving a good chilli kick and was hoping for great flavour and heat. He wasn't disappointed. He had a prawn starter, 5 great big juicy prawns in a...delicious spicy coating. I had a the lamb kabab starter - beautifully presented and so tasty. Our mains were equally flavoursome and really good portions. The excellent food was matched by the service. Our waitress was attentive and welcoming and the food was brought out in a timely fashion. All round an enjoyable and fairly priced meal.More

Great food. Three dishes between four of us plus a bread basket more than sufficient. Railway curry, chicken rogan josh and lamb bhuna were all very tasty. Staff great.

Two poppadums whilst reviewing the menu, it would have been good to have had some raita or mango chutney with these. I selected Fish Chilli Masala and a Fish Curry. My wide selected the Puri and Butter Chicken. Both dishes were cooked perfectly with just...the right amount of spicing. I finished with Ghulab Jamun which is one of my favourite Indian desserts. Great value for money.More

We enjoyed a very tasty meal. I’d recommend the Tawa Masala curry. The boneless pieces of goat were beautifully tender and the curry was packed full of flavour. The service was good. The restaurant was very busy so maybe consider booking.

What a fabulous restaurant! In all our travels we have never had a better Indian meal. The starters were outstanding and the mains very good. The staff were delightful and helpful and made the whole experience pure pleasure. Highly recommend, but make sure you reserve...a table or you won’t get in . . . this jewel is no secret.More

This was a fantastic eating experience. We came early as we didn't have a reservation, but the friendly staff accommodated with no problems. Food was great. Wine list great, the only small complaint would be the blanket 15% surcharge for a public holiday. The bill...for 5 was around $300 before the surcharge, I understand that public holidays cost more, and would be fine with this applied to food items, drinks on the other hand...More

Went with 4 friends on 6 Nov, a Monday. This place is popular so I booked for 6.30pm. Booking site stated max stay time of 2 hrs. Finished main at 8pm and got asked to leave as next booking had arrived. Didn’t even get offered...dessert menu. Curry wasn’t as spicy and hot as normal either. Usually a plus, but a big negative on this visit.More
