Delicious food which was beautifully presented. The staff were attentive- but not over the top. We had a lovely evening and would certainly return again in the future.

We were made to feel very welcome. Food was fab, as were the staff. Meal was for a joint birthday, although we hadn't mentioned it, the staff picked up on it and went out of their way to make the evening go well. They were also great with the children in the party.

Meal and service were good, tables are very small and just with three of us it seemed a bit cramped. My own opinion is that the food while good lacked a bit of spice, I've been fortunate to have travelled and love Indian food and I fully appreciate that restaurants here may have to tone the heat down a bit but surely they should try and maintain the flavours?

Very nice meal in pleasant surroundings and a good atmosphere. Only problem was that card payments could not be taken. If there was not a bank across the road I don't know what the outcome would have been.

Food was very good, service was very attentive overall very good value for your money. Only one complaint the table was a bit small, there were three of us and elbow room was tight!
