Very disappointed with our visit Waited over 3hrs for two courses gave up on dessert!! Service soooooo slow!! Food average but very expensive Asked twice to be moved from a very loud table of 20+ but to no avail £12.95 for two very average prawns to start!! Plates cold Staff very apologetic for the delays but still charge 10% service charge on the bill!!

Was brilliant meal; every part was delicious and good value for money!! Different to a usual style Indian restaurant in a very good way and this plus therefore the different nature of the dishes made it a special meal out! Will definitely be returning as overall 5 stars!!

Food was superb including some fantastic gluten free options. The service was great. It's still very new and that showed so we did have quite a long wait but the staff were lovely and made us very welcome while we waited.

Arrived 18:45 immediately sat at table side by side husband, horrible table position! Offered water but no appertif. After 20 minutes of no service my husband went and ordered drinks at bar, not good! Then rushed to order food, no recommendations offered which was a shame as menu very interesting. Starters were superb, mains were awful. Husband left all the chicken which had texture of rubber. My 4 prawns were ok but surrounded by a avalanche of dry rice with no sauce, so again very dissapointing. Would struggle to return with initial service issues. It can only improve and really hope it does!

We waited nearly an hour and there wasn’t any sign of any food, (not even a popadom). We left..... There seemed to be more complaints than happy customers

Very disappointing. The service was shocking, 20 minute wait for our first drink. Plates were handed to us cold and the waitress did not use a cloth or gloves so their hands were all over them. We had to ask for cutlery. Food was too spicy, we were told that it should have been mild and we should have been offered what strength we wanted, but we weren't. We were not offered any form of rice and it wasn't mentioned on the menu. We were not made to feel welcome, nobody asked us if every was ok . We had to keep asking for drinks , nobody bothered to ask if we wanted anything.

We found the service at the bar to be very slow. Added to this the tap water we received with our drinks didn’t taste right and was returned. The food we received was lovely, and the service from our waitress was great! Only other issue was that once our bill came we had to send it back as we were charge for 4 portions of bread rather than the 1, so charged an additional 20% which was pretty poor.
