comment Best popadom & pickles so far. Too much onion in main dish. Also have had less grisly lamb in other restaurants. Rice very good though.

comment Chicken pakora quite dry, sauce too thin and watery. Main a bit lacking in spice. Meat nice and tender. Most dishes seamed quite similar. Naan breads good. Beer very very expensive. Service a bit slow.

comment Fish pakoras were beautifully coated but needed a nice tasty sauce - which they didn't have. Mains very tasty (maybe because I was so bungry by the time it arrived) but very orange - not convinced there was much between the various dishes, especially the sides.

comment Chutneys ok, but default selection limited. Mixed kebab ok, but sauces like water. Mains way too full of MSG and flourescent orange colouring. Advertised as "spicy hot" but the chilli was like a pickled jalepinio. Sides very disappointing. Service very slow considering we were the only ones in. Watch the £4.95 for the large Cobra too!

comment One word sums this restaurant up - bland!! There was nothing to distinguish it from anything other than ordinary. Starters were dry. Main course dull (every body looked like they had the same sauce base). Poor side dishes. Rather non-descript surroundings and to cap it off, very slow service. It was at least friendly though. Not even average, sorry!

comment Mixed pickle good, but extra. Food unspectacular, although rice and sides were good (except Tarka Dahl which was mediocre). In summary, the probability waves collapsed in an uninspiring manner!

comment Pre-starters a bit bland until the mixed chilli pickle arrived which almost recovered the situation. Dhal soup could have been more spicy and more lentily. Main was a little lacking in character, sides bland. However the atmosphere was good. Waitress was very pleasant but it was 1.5 hours from our arrival until the mains arrived. Cost of beer (no draught) was brutal at £4.95 a pint!
