Lovely food, rustic atmosphere and pleasant staff :) came with a group of 11 people and it was easy to sort everything. I had the Goan Vindaloo which is amazing!

Like the ambience and the staff. They are generous with the serving size and quality is not the best but enough to be contented with.

Very disappointed after convincing my colleagues to come for dinner here. My colleague asked for Vegetarian Pulav and was not available. We asked for 3 dishes i.e Kulfi Faluda and Icecream from the dessert menu and they did not have that...so disappointing and false advertising. We had asked for Amritsari fish in the beggining when we had placed the order and when everyone finished dinner, they brought the same to serve. I dont want any points as i wont be recommending them any more.

Superb Indian food. We shared 6 mains all were exceptional. Fresh spices, cooked fantastically well. Pretty ordinary wine choices, and service a bit slow the only suggestions for improvement.

Get better take-away containers pls. It made it very hard to take the curries home because the boxes were too small. Otherwise, great food and great service

While the atmosphere and food was great, it was disappointing to see that the staff hardly smiled and removed dishes from the table without asking.
