The food is wonderful. I've been here with Indian food newbie's and actual Indians and everyone has left happy. The menu is wide ranging, with plenty of options for both vegetarians and carnivores. The waiters are knowledgeable and friendly, but the awesome food is what keeps us coming back.


Found a decent indian restaurant in london at last.The food and service is first class.


Good Indian food in a setting that has much more ambiance than your standard Indian restaurant. I love the fact that they do cook your own curry nights but you to book in advance. This place is very popular so make a reservation if you plan to go.

This is the best indian restaurant in the country. The food is superb and I have probably eaten there over 100 times. The owners and the staff are great. Try the shepards pie and the lamb sikendari and also nazakat for starters.

The best indian meal i have ever had.

Bob Daintree

Updated and very friendly. Ask for the boss man and he will suggest a meal to enjoy. Extremly reasonable, newly decorated interior, they can deliver locally to, as we found out when we decided on a Christmas buffet lunch rather than go to the normal resturants this year then go to the pub direct from the office.
