Just what we needed on a cold winters night, Exceptional service from our waiter Yuvraj and the meal was sensational. My wife and I went the Royal Banquet and the curries were top notch. Would not hesitate in coming back.

Ordered our takeaway online, the paneer saag is full of food colouring the paneer is almost nuclear in colour. Then the naan breads from our order were missing. Emailed to raise the issue and heard nothing. Don’t waste your money here. Much nicer Indian restaurants...More
