Our table was waiting when we arrived to a very attentive service staff. The atmosphere was more urban casual then expected, but the space wasn't overcrowded nor too loud to be able to have it be personable.
Again, the service staff was really helpful with suggestion and everything ordered arrived promptly. For the price, the portions were reasonable and the flavour decent. It's not right up there with my aunt's curries but does hit the spot better than I am able to myself.

We were there many years ago, and since the renovation the place has a much nice ambience. The service was really good and the food was also really good. We'll definitely go back.

Fantastic Indian food with some fusion dishes that worked remarkably well! I never thought pasta and Parmesan would work so well with a butter chicken sauce, but it does!

The calamari pakora were also excellent. Really, everything was great.

The owner brought in a disabled lady and gave her a free meal at the buffet as well, so plus points there.

Overall, I found everything quite pleasant. Portions are large, so we restricted what we tried and both items were quite tasty and nicely spiced. Having spent time in South Africa and London, we’ve had some good and varied Indian experiences, so we were concerned that the local fare might not be good, but that is not the case for this restaurant. We will go back and try the Tandoor specialties next.

Great Monday deal of half off butter chicken. Delicious! This is the first time the bread did not come right away with dinner, but they were slammed in the kitchen with all the take out orders. Friendly and great waiter.

Everything was dirty - table, chairs, floor, dishes, silverware. Door was open so there was flies everywhere. It was gross.

Other than a screaming toddler for an hour at a table nearby, it was perfect :) (Out of the restaurant's control obviously.) Food was absolutely delicious and service was flawless. We come often for take out or dine in and it is always great.

We went as a party of 10 and asked for a good variety of food to be served. The server chose a wonderful selection of dishes that met our needs at a very reasonable price. Great night out thoroughly enjoyed by all ten of us, with really excellent service.

An excellent restaurant with excellent food and great service. Wish there was a bit more rice, but had enough butter chicken for leftovers and it tasted just as good the next day.
