Meals came out quickly & service was superb. Butter chicken was so good we ended up buying another for take away. Worth every cent :)

We came on a quiet weekday evening. While the decor is minimal, once the food arrives you won't notice where you are - it's delicious. The service was excellent with superb gluten literacy: menus clearly show gluten (and nuts), our waitress was able to answer all questions and the chef made us a dish without an ingredient as well. The food itself was so delicious we didn't want to stop.

Faultless from start to finish. Food is superb, cooked with love and care. Service is that perfect mix of professional and friendly and again, the care factor that's so rare these days. Our table of 5 shared the banquet of 3 starters, 4 mains, naan, rice, and a delightful dessert. Mains can be topped up on request. For an Indian restaurant in a semi-rural location, these guys are nailing it and put the city to shame!

Interesting and flavourful food, lovely spices. Service staff were friendly and interested in our opinion of the food. I had taken my children out to experience new foods, we enjoyed it and will go again.

Good tasty Indian food. Restaurant was very empty so can't judge how they would handle a busy night. Great flavours in all their dishes, especially the butter chicken.
