First visit, parking for 5 or 6 cars in front but we managed to park easily on the opposite side of the road (care - some spaces are double yellow lines). Recommended by a friend and I add my recommendation to hers. Choice and quality of food superb, up there with the very best we've had. Recommend lamb shanks and mixed grill, but everything looked and tasted great. Didn't have a starter and just as well as portions were a good size. Had a poppadom each instead and even the dips were excellent. Try the lime pickle with chickpeas, excellent. Price was very reasonable, 3 beers and a bottle of wine between 4, main course and sides, about £25 a head. Don't be put off by a couple of surly waiters, with food this good you can suffer a little bit of moody service. Oh, and they had run out of Cobra Zero so the driver had to move on the water, also no Baileys for the complimentary drink, but can't really allow that to detract from the high quality of the food. We'll be back!

I've ordered food from this Restaurant before very begrudgingly using the just eat app... The food has Always been a great with their interpretation of modern British Indian cuisine... While the food isn't wildly different or experimental or ground breaking,,, what you'll get here are solid examples of traditional modern British Indian restaurants cuisine... Since I wasn't too far away from their restaurant I decided that instead of ordering via an app... I'd actually sit in and order a meal... I ordered their king prawn biryani which is Always fantastic but instead of the regular curry sauce that comes with it as standard... I asked for a prawn Rogan Josh instead and obviously I'd pay for the difference in costs... I tend to ask for custom modifications to my dishes in restaurants... The chef could NOT possibly have pre cooked the food and kept it sitting around waiting for the next customer to arrive... they'd have to cook it fresh.... or not be able to supply the dish with the modifications that I requested... I Also ordered onion bhaji's and sheek kebabs... The all arrived fairly quickly and they were as expected... the food tasted great and was well presented and considering the recent increase in the costs of the raw ingredients and fuel prices and operating costs of the restaurant... the price was reasonable.... In fact... although the portions sizes were a fairly standard take away container sized portions... I couldn't finish it it one sitting so the staff kindly brought me several take away containers and helped me pack it up for take away.... They even introduced me to their head chef and I honestly felt like a maharaja as they did everything excepted to make me feel comfortable and very welcome in their fantastic establishment... I'd easily recommend that you come here for a decent standard of modern British Indian cuisine... in my experience they've never missed the mark... ever.... if possible... do sit in the restaurant instead of getting a takeaway as you get all the benefits of table service at no additional cost.... and you can get precise adjustments to your dishes that you can't get from ordering on apps.... They are more than happy and willing to adjust the amount of chill and spices and make alterations to your dishes upon request... so yeah.... You can order a korma with so much chilli it burns... or a vindaloo with no chilli and spices... but quite why you'd do this is beyond me... lol... But they are most accommodating and will blend dishes as requested to your tastes...! I didn't check but I'm sure that they have plenty of vegetarian options available... the restaurant was well lit bright and airy... furniture and decor were of a reasonably good quality and standard for a small restaurant of this type... Definitely worth considering if you fancy a decent curry at a reasonable price...

I was just there with my partner, the food had no flavour whatsoever, no spices in fact was sweet af. We just asked politely for our bill because we didn’t enjoy that food. The waiter then started to ask questions like “where did you ever find butter chicken that is spicy”? Questioning us like we didn’t know what we just put in our mouth. We will never go there ever again, and the service was more than bad. I would’ve gave 0 stars if I could.

Had a curry missing from my order leaving me with just rice and nan.Managed to get a part refund but my meal was completely ruined. The food was sub par and won't be ordering from them again. The Tandoori didn't have that have distinctive oven taste that gives it flavour. I doubt many Indian people eat here and its a shame as I was looking forward to eating some good food.
