    5 star review  I consider myself a bit of an expert on indian restaurants, having eaten at hundreds from New York to most European countries and of corse across the UK. In my opinion this restaurant is one, if not the best I’ve had the pleasure of eating at. You can tell right away that the food is cooked individually for you and the spices are as fresh as it comes. We travel an hour each way to eat here as no other has come up to their standards. Enjoy.

    5 star review  This place offers great authentic indian food, friendly service and a cozy atmosphere. The staff is really welcoming and polite, the beer glasses are frozen, so the beer is literally served ice cold - big plus! The menu selection is wide and all the food comes rapidly and with a great taste. Compliments to the chef!
