The quality varies - last night was our third and last visit - the attitude of the waiter was close to totally disinterested - the sauces are great but the meat and chicken tough, tasteless and not cooked long enough - excellent naan bread though...More

I've actually grown to like this restaurant so much that I've returned several times since my last review. It never fails to please me given the extensive menu that even includes Chinese/ Afghan/ traditional Indian cuisine and Manchurian sizzlers. These sizzlers are so well prepared...More

Excellent Indian food at very reasonable prices. Can't go wrong with the Bbq and lamb dishes. I've been going for several years and they've always been consistent with quality.

We are regulars at this restaurant. Most items are tasty but their mutton bunnies are delicious! The garlic naan is also good as well as the chicken tikka and butter chicken.

Ordered : chilli beef, chicken manchurian, and butter chicken. All the food was delicious and generous portions. All served very nicely. Waiter was very slow. But manager and owner (two Uncles) were on the ball and very helpful to all customers.

We felt like Indian food as eaten by locals. The decor is basic, the service swift and the food tasty. I loved it enough to visit twice in two days. The menu is reasonably large and persons like us who avoid rice were still able...More
