Delicious every time! Biggest problem is trying to order something else on the menu…as we don’t ever want to miss having our usual favourites!

Always try and find the best Indian restaurant on our holidays, was not disappointed here. Great service, reasonable prices and tasty food. Wasn’t the best we’ve ever had, but would definitely return.

Phoned in for a basic butter chicken and Nan, I was told it would be ready in 35 minutes. Upon arrival I ended up waiting 1 hour and 20 minutes for my meal! The worst part was there was a lovely elderly lady in her...late 80s waiting before me for 1 hour and 30 minutes, yet when an Indian family walked in without phoning they got their meal within half an hour? They had at least 2 wait staff and tables had dishes and mess on them for atleast 45 minutes. Absolutely terrible service. They gave me a rice pudding as a sorry for waiting which must have been in the fridge a week, I wouldn't even feed it to my dog. I'll never come back here again, appalled is an understatement. When I finally got my meal it was extremely plain and underwhelming. Don't lie about the wait time, if you can't deliver the food on time don't bother selling it.More

The food was average. Customer service was poor. Staff need some training about how to welcome customers. It was our first time and we will never go back.More
