Limited choice and food Luke warm. A lot of fried items and lacked vegetable side dishes. Dhal was reheated but still slightly warm and lacked flavour and did not complement the dishes. Nor sure what was in the seafood kofta and was very dry and rubbery. Very expensive for what you get.

We went for the set menu including a cocktail drink and a signed cookbook.overall it was good value considering it included these.However the portions were very small.the taste was nice but not amazing. However the food from a la carte looked much better and thd portions were much bigger as well.No wonder the set menu was priced at £35!
