Service was not the best . I was going to be late and called the restaurant. The person who answered did not even greet us properly. When we reach, table was not even wiped properly. So I wiped it myself. Was only given one menu for three people. Seriously ? Wanted this meal to be a special one cuz it was my dad's birthday. The food tho was pretty good. Just- the tom yam soup. OMG , seriously did the kitchen staff put one whole pack of salt in there. Me and Dad only had like one sip each! Disgusting. The drinks were pretty bad too. When we were leaving, again no customer service. My god. Food was good. The service tho - atrocious. Would come here again but probably not for some special meals

We only had the fish head curry as we bought this on a Groupon. The curry was great. The fish and vegetables was fresh, and the curry was fragrant, tangy and not overly spicy. The service was prompt and friendly too. We spotted loads of other dishes on the menu that we would love to try so we'll definitely be back again.

Lamb masala was tender n flavorful although it is rather salty. Naan was good.(garlic n butter) Mango fish curry was flavorful n fresh fish. Tandoori chicken could be abit more tender instead of dry. Service wasn't that good but prompt if you remind them a few times. Cost wise was surprisingly value for money for 2 pax.
