comment Bhuna prawn on puri very average. No coriander delivered apparently and sorely missed. Main - sauce okay, but lamb was tough. Didn't like saag aloo (no potato) and I never don't like saag aloo! Starters - orders were asked for first so that they could get on with preparing. Probably supposed to be a thoughtful touch, but made me feel rushed. Bhindi Bhaji okay though. Overall: not impressed.

comment V. impressive menu!!
Starter very nice but disappointed that the choice of heat didn't mean much. Didn't really justify the long wait either. Main very tasty. Unfortunately my overall enjoyment was spoiled by the very long wait. Definitely a restaurant for small parties.

comment Not very much wine in my spritzer!

Food was good - liked the tapas style.

A nice place to come if you're a couple - not so good as a big group.

comment It was a nice meal but fairly ordinary. Service could have been better but we were a big party. They were certainly friendly and happily provided a complementary slice of cake for Gav's birthday, even though it hadn't been pre-arranged.

comment Spicy aubergine starter - fab.

Lamb tikka karahi very nice, but could have been a lot warmer and had a lot more meat in it.

Saag bhindi - very tasty.

Very nice atmosphere despite being a very quiet week night.

comment Very nice. They took a fairly large party at short notice. Unusual menu. Main - fish bhaji - was particularly good. Shame the naans were too hard which spoilt the effect.

comment Starter was Trisuli Poleko Machha. Came completely overdone so I asked for another one which came pretty quickly. Tasted very nice - quite subtle spices - but it was very hard work getting rid of the bones which seemed to have been glued on; not really worth the effort so I ended up leaving a fair bit. Main was Himalyaya Bhenda which was very nice indeed.

comment VERY nice lime chutney.

Pickled calamari was superb as usual.

Salmon tikka was good as a main. The garlic green beans it came with were lovely.

Definitely one to have side dishes with though. :-)

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.
