This restaurant has been recommended to me several times and can say that that our visit lived up the hype. The restaurant is tastefully decorated, staff were helpful and friendly but most importantly, the food was great. Everything ordered was delicious and piping hot. Perfect. Loved the fact that the Balti dishes, which food was served in, had lids to retain heat too. Looking at the menu, I notice the prices are a little higher than usual but I, personally, don't mind paying a bit more for quality fare and the portions are quite generous too. Only minor gripe for our party of four, was the nice looking cutlery was a little awkward in use. No problem recommending this restaurant

This is the second time I've dined at this restaurant and was not disappointed. Comfortable, pleasant surroundings and music at an appropriate level to talk,our table of four had a great evening. The food is very good and the portion size of the dishes were just right. Our guests for the evening were equally impressed, so no hesitation in recommending this establishment.

Lovely food and great value but very quiet, only 1 other table was filled in the restaurant. It's a shame as the range and quality of the food was great.
