Perfect food and excellent service. Went to celebrate my Husband's 50th Birthday with a couple of friends and were looked after by the waiter very attentively.

I visited this restaurant with my work colleagues and we all enjoyed the food very much. Staff are also very friendly. We will definitely go there again. Lots of choice for food including vegetarian food options.

A restaurant with a difference- wonderful food all freshly cooked. A great change from the traditional balti house as the menu choice had a number of new dishes on. Friendly staff and a rustic authentic ambiance. Would highly recommend.

The food was delicious, we had the deep fried paneer and mushroom starters and Jalfrezi's for mains. Totally satisfied with bags of flavour and just the right amount of spice. Friendly, warm and welcoming staff throughout the evening. Well done 1580!!

The Handi Gosht (Pot Pepper Lamb Curry) was delicious and so was the garlic naan. Bit disappointed there was no Pork to try the Pork Madra and no Gulab Jamun. I didn't like the poppadoms or the relishes but if you want to try something different from the ordinary run of the mill curry house then give this place a try.

First time visit and we were not disappointed. The service was very professional and informative - not in any way intrusive which can be annoying. The starters we had were fab and such generous portions, really we didn't need two mains - we will know for next time because there will be a next time.

Nice little place with a contemporary twist on classic dishes. We had 3 courses, which is not the norm. It was because everything was delightful..The homemade kulfi was to die for. The staff were very pleasant and attentive. Will definitely go again.....
