comment Starter of spicy duck was very good and just spicy enough.
Main of Arachi chicken something was also quite spicy but very tasty.
Excellent Nan bread.
Rice portions were on the small side.
Water glass topped up without being prompted.
Great service considering our group size (although they were not full).

comment Popadoms & accompanying dips were good.
Assorted Kebab & sauces were nicely done & tasty
Beef Dhansak was good.
Rice & nans were excellent.
Portions were sufficient.
Considering tha we were a party of 14 the service was good.
The higher than usual price was probably due to the many extra sides that were ordered but not all eaten, as the portions were adequate.

comment Poppadoms tasty and crispy.
Ample starter of Mixed Kebab was nicely spicy.
Pathia Chicken was flavoursome.
Nans & rice were more than sufficient!
Portions are unecessarily large. I hate to see food wasted...
Kingfisher lager on tap at £3.50 was good.
Sevice was excellent
Nicely busy for a Wednesday.

comment Crisp poppadoms but small quantities of pickle etc.
Good portion of (tasty) Chicken Tikka, as starter.

Excellent, Nan bread straight from the oven.

comment Bright but plain interior. Plenty of staff but we were the only customers in (it was Wednesday though) which didn't do much for the atmosphere. Some interesting spellings on the menu...

Most of the advertised beers were off so we settled for the expensive Cobra lager.

Service was friendly and improved as the meal progressed.

Starter of Aubergene Pakora was a bit bland but the main of Chicken Dansak was good. Sides were ok.

comment The food was tasty & freshly cooked but the portions of nan bread & rice were too small, served on cold plates. Although the interior is tastefully & expensively decorated the private room we were in had no atmosphere.
