Flavourful food, great service, and nice cozy ambience in a hectic part of town. Especially appreciated the well-thought-out vegetarian and vegan options, and the cocktail special.

Expensive, small portions, tasty food but not worth the money and some flavours quite overpowering
Nice to try once but wouldn't go back
Not as good as other modern indian restaurants

Great atmosphere on arrival, quickly seated and then served but not at all hurried. Drink and food choice is great, not too extensive but about right. All the starters are equally good, but again, good size to whet the appetite but leave more than enough room for the mains, which again were brilliant - both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Very well looked after, friendly staff, not at all rushed, really able to enjoy the quality of the food and evening overall. Thoroughly recommend.

Lovely experience at this venue. Great service and the food was fantastic.

Went here for my partners birthday and they didn’t disappoint! We both loved our meals that we shared and the staff gave us a special dessert to celebrate our evening.

Gave 4 stars for food as lamb chops were quite chewy, other dishes from the menu were good however their special jackfruit naan was a disappointing. Otherwise good service and will definitely go back again.

Food was amazing. The Thali is enough for 4 people. Only complaint is the staff should be a bit more helpful in regards to what their menu is like. It felt like they had little to no knowledge about the food they serve. For example when asked how big is the paneer portion? Staff just replied with oh there will be about 3 chunks. For someone that has never been to this place, we all just assumed it was little chunks. Turns out each chunk is the size of your palm. The staff could have elaborated on this. Overall, can’t complain about the food and ambience. Portion sizes are big, so order small at first and then order more if you still feel hungry!

Well worth a visit. All dishes were delicious and different. The lamb chops are to die for and the Darjeeling Negronis hit the spot too! Will definitely book again.

Absolutely excellent meal. Have been two or three times in the evening but not at lunchtime. Went on 30 December so slightly odd timing - we didn't know how full/empty it might be with Covid/Xmas/new year plans etc. But a nice room/atmosphere. Food was excellent. Perhaps you get better service at lunchtimes? Certainly the portions were extremely generous. You could definitely share some of the mains between two people - eg the lamb chops and the house tandoor chicken. On the other hand - nice to sample lots of things! Really top food. And nice service. And very good value. And excellent location - near to everything!

A lovely little intimate restaurant, great location and good service

Food all cooked fresh and was very good, maybe a little more options would be good but for a first visit I would definitely recommend.

Really did not like the food. Chicken was clearly very old and reheated and lamb chops had bad the exact flavour. Overall the food was not up to standards and it looks a lot better than it tastes.

Lovely service and food was great. The chops were fantastic. The Thali was ordered which is more than enough for 2 people - perfect for 3. The Thali has a full selection of options and all are tasty indeed - albeit a bit pricey. Received an anniversary treat on the house which was much appreciated. Overall, we were very happy.

My wife and I had a great time. The lighting wasn't ideal (I and another group had to use the tourch on our phones to read the menu), but the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. It wasn't busy (a few days before Christmas, but omicron had taken hold) and is a little off the beaten track, but is well worth seeking out. Between us we had the bhaji onion rings (good), shish kabab (excellent), amritsari lamb chops (oustanding), Chickpea Chaat (good), tandoor cauliflower (good), masala fries (good), the butter chicken naan and the green chilli/cheese and butter chicken naan (lovely, but need to be eaten when first served, as they are lukewarm). We finished by sharing the Nutella naan with coconut ice cream (fantastic) and were thoroughly stuffed. We are not big eaters and probably 1 main between us and 1 naan with the main course would have sufficed, but we wanted to try everything. With a drink each and tip it came in at less than £100, so a bargain for the quality.

Food was good - they didnt put all the useless items in the mighty thali so that made a big difference.
Ambience was a bit dark when we got there - the lights were dimmed and it made it difficult to enjoy the meal.
