I generally don't regard myself a fuzzy eater, especially if it comes to indian food. I love indian cuisine and am often cooking indian dishes with friends or alone. This restaurant however has set a new low for indian cuisine in any way. The whole bill for 1 person was 20 pounds, with the waiter writing up the bill in an absolutely illegible fashion and reacting very annoyed when I politely asked him to explain the items on my bill.

The food itself was an absoulte low, I ordered a paneer dish (indian cheese) and at first thought they mixed up my order as there were only about 5 tiny cubes of paneer in there.

The gravy was absolutely bland, just canned tomato with an incredible amount of chilli as a misguided attempt to hide the lack of any other taste whatsoever.

The side mango lassi was essentially water with mango pulp.

After this poor attempt of a meal the waiter was very rudely asking for / almost-demanding a tip.

The whole place is tiny and hygiene is okay by indian, rather poor by western standards.

Do avoid this place like the plague. You get the same quality of food by throwing together tesco canned tomatos with parts of your shoe and it most certainly is cheaper and more enjoyable.


A restaurant to impress visiting.Amazing try Naga lamb an Satkora chicken spices from Bangladesh and reasonably priced the golden oven serving top quality food.Good value for money and friendly service
