A great selection of street food of India- Pani puri,papri chaat,samosas,pav bhaji as starters and Prawn malai for mains... cant belive such an excellent flavours away from India. The best rasmalai i ever had and with very helpful & smiley staff it was just a treat. Great value for money....will be back again soon

It looks like this branch just had a refurb, everything looks new fresh and clean. This is a very nice place for those who like authentic indian food. I recommend a thali, where you get several different dishes served on a metal plate. If you prefer white tablecloth and posh dining, go somewhere else!


The meal I had here was wonderful, it was delicious, varied,at least 7 items in my plate, divine. We had limited time but the meal was delivered as fast as we had asked and was reasonably priced. Cannot fault it. The restaurant looks newly decorated and very colourful warm and inviting.

Visited this restaurant with family members who are not major lovers of curries but I wanted to change their minds. From the moment we walked into the restaurant we were made to feel very welcome. The pre 6.30pm menu is great value for 2 courses - we decided to have starters and mains. Food was fresh, hot and very very tasty. Even the non curry lovers were suitably impressed.
