comment Got the impression this is a fairly new restaurant. We were a party of 12 and they dealt pretty well with that, but then there wasn't too much else going on.
Have to say I really enjoyed the food, except the 'pickles/dips' which were not at all exciting, although poppadoms themselves were very good.
Mulligatawny soup had some unusual ingredients such as pineapple pieces, also was quite creamy, but it was hot, spicy and delicious.
Main course of Lamb Bhuna was also very tasty, lamb well cooked and nicely spiced.

comment Pops nice and crispy - and a lot of them! Mango sauce (too thin to call it a chutney) was average; pink yoghurt thing was bland; onion mix was okay. We asked for lime pickle, which eventually arrived. I found it very sour, but the pickle fans thought it was bland.

Fish Amritsury (cat fish apparently) was decidedly average: The thinner bits of fish were severely overcooked - bigger bits had a nice crunch to the coating, but were rather bland. Had to dip into the tamarind sauce on every mouthful just to get some flavour.

Chicken Karahi was the highlight of an average meal. Full of big chunks of onion and a few dried chillies with a nice sauce. Chicken was a tad on the dry side though.

Sides were pretty poor: tarka dahl was far to salty and didn't have much garlic; bhindi bhaji was bland; saag aloo was a mix of overdone (do the point of slimy) spinach and underdone potatoes; mushroom bhaji was quite nice though; rice was overdone too.

Cheap due to the BYOB and not charging us for the late arrival dishes (my main course arrived 10 minutes after everyone else's and did a few sides). However, I've bumped up my initial service mark a point because of that. Service was rather slow though - don't think they're geared up for a table of 12!

Nothing at all inspiring me to go back.

comment The Poppodums were crispy and tasty I thought, and we all had at least 2 each. However there was a very poor selection of chutneys and dips: A tasteless pink yoghurt thing, a passable chutney sauce, a bland salad and not a great lime pickle - that had to be asked for separately.

Starter of Fish Amritsury (Battered catfish).It was quite a disappointing dish of deep fried fish (that was a bit dry) in not at all flavoursome batter. The best bit about it was the tamarind sauce supplied for dipping.

The sides were also disappointing. A tarkha dahl that was way too salty, a fairly bland bhindi bhaji, undercooked potato in the sag aloo and a reasonable mushroom bhahji. The last 2 arrived late but we weren't charged for them, apparently.

I did really like the main course of chicken chiili garlic however. Nice amount of heat and spice and pretty tasty. the chicken was also cooked pretty well I thought. There wasn't too much rice to go round though!

This restaurant toiled to serve us in a timely manner. I don't think they can cope with the size of party we had (12) and I can imagine it stretched their kitchen to breaking point!

FInally, on the plus side it is a BYOB which keeps the cost down but I wouldn't be in a rush to come back.

comment The Poppodums were crispy and tasty, however there was a very poor selection of chutneys and dips.

The pakora was rather dry, I prefer them a little moist.

Lamb Karahi was delicious.

Tarka dahl was too salty.

Saag aloo was overdone.

Another restaurant that cannot cope with a large group.

I could go back but with no more than 4.
