Cold night and the restaurant was freezing, had hired heaters in place that gave it a weird glow, but still on the cool side. Service was OK, and the karahai curry OK, but tandor meats/fish were nit as good as we've had elsewhere. Style was definitely over substance....

The food was good and tasty. The presentation of food was very good! Cocktails were nice and were served in a relatively short time. But the very long wait for food without any explanation from staff was terrible. We had to wait more than an hour to receive even their signature sharing platter starter dish. Many clients who were seated after we came, had their dinner, paid the bill and left before we saw a single morsel of food at our table of eight. Our table was reserved at 7 pm, we saw the first food after 8:45!!

The service is too slow and Jason, the Manager, is unapologetic and rude.

The sharing platter is not suitable for the price and you end up cutting in half each of the 5 items you get. Was very disappointed considering you can get a full mix grill platter at your local mixed grill pubs

The food and service was great. We were given lopsided cocktail glasses for the pornstar martini drinks which were off centre, therefore whenever we lifted the glass to take a drink the cocktail ended up spilling over us and the table. No straws were provided with the cocktails either.

Hi Raani, Thank you so much for leaving us a review we really appreciate it, we are so happy to see you enjoyed your evening with us, when it comes to your cocktail this is the first instance we've had a customer have a problem with that type of glass, holding it by the stem would have been an ideal solution, if not then we are more than happy to use different glassware for yourself just ask your server who will be more than happy to accommodate. Thank you again for your time and we hope to see you again soon!

Excellent food. The lamb shank was very good quality meat, very well cooked (although in my opinion the dish had been over-flavoured with cloves) but tasty nonetheless. The mixed platter is highly recommendable.

Very enjoyable. Staff were friendly and efficient, very good value for money. It wasn't as busy as we expected so it did lack a bit of atmosphere.

We live nearby but had never ventured in. Really pleased that we did, as the food was excellent. We will definitely be back. We can recommend the Chicken Saag and the Kerala fish curries.

The food was excellent, the ambiance very good. I had narrowed my choice down to two mains and chose what I thought would be the less spicy of the two, but it was spicier than I expected — not a complaint, I like Indian food that way. The only negatives were that they could not do a decaf coffee and that they charged me for two courses I didn’t order and I had to go back twice to get it resolved. They weren’t difficult about it though.

Great food (sharing platter was a fun surprise, and very tasty mains), nice interior, service a little slow but this didn’t affect my experience overall. 5/5.
