We visited this restaurant on the back of very good reviews. However, bit disappointed. Found the whole meal pretty average, just an ok curry. Nothing wow. Would not make the effort to return.

Food was lovely, weren't offered a drink on arrival, had to find a waiter for after dinner coffees, staff were all very nice, need to address these service issues, will probably return.

Lovely food but had to wait an eternity between courses. Manager apologised as he was short staffed but offered no discount or complimentary anything. Starter and main with no dessert took 2 hours 45 minutes.
