We ate early evening before going to a show and the restaurant wasn't particularly busy. My wife had pre-booked a table weeks before, explained she wanted a "nice" table and they sat us next to the kitchen! Staff are attentive, decor a bit dated and tired, menu choices ok but the whole experience was nothing much better than the 3 stars I have given. The bar area was a bit untidy and stuff visible that would be better behind a closed door or even tidied away.
Previous 4 & 5 star reviews encouraged us to book, but whilst the food is good, we have had comparable standards in many other Indian restaurants.
Probably wouldn't return but would use it for a take-away.

second time we have eaten here.
very busy, they were running late with a very large party who return once a year for a meal. so the very charming owner gave us a free drink and bought out one of his speciality lamb dishes to try.
clearly very popular but run with totally good humour.
The food was lovely my husband had the lamb dish , the nan breads were especially good.
they do takeaway also.
so far the best we have found in harrogate, this is the third restaurant tried in the town.
excellent food and customer service

Saturday evening after a local festival meant a lively evening in this smart and well managed restaurant. Service was very attentive and good humoured. The choice of food was as expected from any Indian, with the ‘recommendations ‘ being truly excellent. Quite nice to have a meal that was wholly satisfactory

My husband and I visited this restaurant last night and were made so welcome from the moment we walked through the door. The service was excellent and the food was absolutely fantastic. The host of the restaurant was so knowledgeable my husband has special dietary needs and he advised us on on. So thank you all for making our visit so special you were so busy but your service was perfect will definitely be back on our next visit 11 out of 10
