My friend was really feeling like a curry and we went here for dinner last night (4 October 2017).

Firstly, the ambience is very nice. It’s set out very beautifully!

The service is alright. The waiters are friendly.

The complimentary pompodums with a coriander dip and chutney are a nice touch.

My friend had the butter chicken. It was very flavorsome and had a perfect spice level. I had the chicken korma, it was very tasty and creamy just like a korma should be. I would definitely recommend it. Only constructive criticism is adding some more cashew nuts. Both curries were served with rice.

My highlight of the meal was the naan bread, I had a garlic and butter one. Extremely delicious.

Definitely worth trying out if you’re keen for Indian food and live in the Parkview area.

It was emptyish for a Friday night but surprisingly, the ambience wasn't too bad probably because of its red walls and gold curtains. Like all Indian restaurants, the decor was kitsch in the extreme! But the food was nice enough - chicken tikka Marsala with fluffy basmati rice and butter naan on the side. R30 corkage for a delicious Warwick cab franc 2010 was the cheapest I've ever known and the service (from the manager) was excellent.
Note: if you're offered a table outside, you won't be affected by the weather - it's really inside - in the central space of the Village Shopping Centre.

Good curries and an OK wine list. Service was satisfactory and would go back again when in the area.

The only items that stopped it having 5 stars were the pompadour and the samosas. The actual dishes were first class these were buttered chicken and chicken jalfrezi and chicken Bhutan. Service was very pleasant.
