A good location, clearly understood menus with nicely cooked Indian food , bring your own alcohol (which avoids you being charged silly prices for drinks). Have been several times with groups of adults also with young children, always had good food and friendly service with no problems. Relaxed atmosphere for get- togethers - would recommend

Went there on a Friday night, busy as usual, ordered our food no problem, friend ordered a chicken shashlick, it arrived on the table within 10 minsburnt to a crisp!! Told the waiter of the problem and he just said that’s how it comes!! Anyway the rest of us got our excellent food, when we finished said waiter came to take plates away but we stopped him taking the burnt food and asked to see the manager, eventually he came an apologised and said the waiter shouldn’t of said what he said and changed the meal straight away, like the place but I clocked that the said waiter was being stroppy with other diners, manager didn’t charge us for the meal but our friend was still starving having had no food, will go back again but hopefully no getting served by same waiter

Came here on a Saturday night as my parents had recommended it. It was very busy as expected on a Saturday. My chicken Tandoori starter was undercooked , chicken was almost raw. Told the waiter who gave bi apologie just got me another one. The waiter wasn't the friendliest either. Had a nice night with my family but been to so many better places than this. The food is probably below average and the service feels rushed and not very friendly. Won't be going back as I've got loads of nicer Indians by me.

Ordered Butter Chicken and told waiter I had a nut allergy. He said okay. After two bites, I started getting a severe reaction. When I told the manager, they said that I didn't say "how allergic I was". I spent the night in Arrow Park hospital and nearly died.

Watching Netflix "Rotten" TV series, saw how some restaurants swap peanuts for Almonds as it's less expensive. Not sure if this was the case here but if you have an allergy, beware of this restaurant. They do not care about food safety.

The food here is inexpensive and consistently excellent. Many unusual dishes and the best starters ever ( try the chat on purée ) . The fact that you take your own booze keeps the cost down . Busy on Saturday nights now so I advise that you book
Best curry house on the Wirral
