"Great neighbourhood Indian."

Fresh in mind and full to the brim, the buffet selection is fab. For a tenner, you get the choice of 3 veg, 1 beef, 1 lamb and 4 chicken curry's. Throw in a selection of starters and all the sundries and that's great value! Oh, and to top it off, they were super tasty.
Decor is a little out of the 70's, but that's part of the deal and the appeal of this atmospheric little Indian. I'll be visiting again soon.

Came here for the buffet (£10 every night including weekends-although you better book ahead) and was not disappointed. All of this review is based on our buffet experience.
The server told us what table to go to rather than escorting us there, which was a bit fast-foody.
Poppadums are given one per person when you declare your buffet interests, not unlimited on the buffet itself.
The rice is lovely. The naan tasty but greasy.
Beef curry was excellent, very soft beef.
Garlic chilli chicken very tasty too, as was the garam masala.
Overall it's a really solid curry house - however the properly old school decor and toilets may put you off. This isn't fine dining by any stretch of the imaginiation, just a good, solid Indian buffet.
This is a great wee family restaurant to visit for some really great tasting Indian food. Looking from the outside it does not look much, but going on food, the taste is 100% great and the staff are lovely and very willing to make sure your meal is perfect each visit!
There is a choice of a la carte, or Buffett. We go Buffett so we can experience a more range of the foods.
The starters are cooked in small quantities , to ensure freshness for each person. Absolutely delicious pakoras . The main courses (about 7 at least) are all well labelled and the chef is always more than willing to explain how they are cooked and the ingredients. With most Indian restaurants , desert is usually a small selection, including mango kulfi , which is very tasty! I would also recommend a jug of mango lasthi , a drink made with Indian yogurt and mangos.
The only downside of this place is the toilet is down a narrow flight of stairs. The price is great , food awesome, staff delightful! What are you all waiting for, give it a try!
Came here after reading a few good reviews but left feeling a bit disappointed.
We came on a sunday evening for the buffet priced at £9.95 its only a small restaurant and was quite busy. We were seated and bought some poppadoms, yoghurt dip and spiced onions, i love spiced onions and wasnt impressed they were just bland! Still not put off went up for some starters which are topped up regularly,so nice and fresh but im quite sure the chicken pakoras were made with normal flour and not gram flour which basically makes them chicken nuggets!
For mains there is a choice of 9 curries, nann bread, and pilau rice, again i found them a bit bland. i think overall this place could be great maybe just more attention to detail and FLAVOUR is needed!!! but i did notice that they were very busy with takeaway orders so maybe this impacted on the food on the buffet.
Used to live just up the road so came here quite alot. The buffet is amazing, very tasty food and can eat as much as you lik for really cheap. I ended up eating a bit too much because it was so tasty.
yummy that is all
