Busy restaurant but a pleasant atmosphere. Great service they really couldn’t have done much more to help. The choice of food at the buffet was fantastic and tasted great, plenty of options to choose from. Great value

The restaurant, food and staff was all lovely. The only criticism I have is about the coke. When we first arrived I ordered a coke which was fine. Both myself and a friend ordered another two and we both agreed that they tasted funny. I tried to explain to the waiter that the syrup was running out but I don’t think he understood me, he brought a replacement which again tasted funny, so we opted for lemonade as a replacement, which was fine, but I have a sneaking suspicion that other customers might have had the same experience with the coke. So really the waiter should have arranged to have the syrup changed to avoid other customers having to send cokes back.

Nice Welcome Starters and Mains we found to be Excellent. I booked for 4 people 2 weeks in advance I received a phone call on the day asking if we could come later or earlier, so we arrived an hour earlier. I would of Given a 6 but unfortunately we were asked by the staff to free up the table, so I never got to try the desserts.

A fab night, we have visited this restaurant twice before and I must say that Mo and his staff have excellent customer service skills. The food choice is outstanding, even suitable for children. The buffet set price is excellent value for money, we will be visiting again soon. Thanks 👍

Starters was great. Only tried a little of 2 curries which were ok but will try different ones next time. Dessert was ok but not a big choice. Service was fine but questioned bill and was over charged but was sorted straight away. I will however go back again.

Staff were very friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. The food was presented well and tasted lovely. My only criticism was the colour changing walls with the patterns was a bit too hard on the eye and made things quite blurry. (Sounds petty but was quite distracting)

We've just come back from a Valentine's meal here and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent, the food was fresh and delicious and it was very reasonably priced. It's quickly become our favourite Indian restaurant!
