This is a lovely 1 Michelin starred Indian restaurant with impeccable service.  We were made to feel extremely welcome throughout our visit from entering to leaving and all the floor staff knew their products and made sure we were attended to at every turn.  We opted for the set menu on this occasion which was £35 pp for a welcome bellini, popadoms (with excellent chutneys) starter, main, sides, naan breads (plain), desserts and tea with petits fours.  This was absolutely excellent value for money on the pre-theatre evening menu (available up until 7pm) and I was honestly defeated hands down on this menu being utterly stuffed at the end.

That would be my only criticism as we were almost unable to walk afterwards and hadn’t even finished all the dishes.  The food itself was hearty, fulsome and absolutely enjoyable.  Highlights on this occasion were the date and tamarind chutney (sublime) to go with such light popadoms as well as the supreme of chicken breast, creamy chicken tikka (done just about as well as it possibly can be), velvety pistachio kulfi (intensly creamy ice cream) and actually the white chocolate coated mint leaf petit four which was superb.  All in all, this really was a great set menu and very good value for money served by very caring staff.  A superb option if you like carefully prepared curry and reasonable prices combined!
