Interesting restaurant with a rustic charm. Menu is well designed. Portions are generous. Staff is alert and friendly. Food tastes great. Spice levels can be adjusted as required. Highly recommended restaurant for all visitors. Better to make reservations prior to your visit.

Got to say not usually a fan of Butter Chicken but this was amazing- not sweet & lots of good flavour. Everyone enjoyed their meals - perfect lunchtime portions.

We have had two work dinners - the staff are fantastic and tailor a specific menu to your needs- they are also great at adjusting the menu on the night when numbers unexpectedly grow!

Really flavoursome Indian food with friendly staff. The restaurant itself has great decor and do check out the bathrooms while you're there - that's all I'll say. They also do great wee sliders - pretty dam spicey!
