We booked this restaurant a few weeks before visiting Cambridge, on recommendation, we are glad we did. We did not eat until 8 o'clock, but if we were to visit again we would eat earlier so we could have the 7 course tasting menu. The...looks of amazement on the faces of the diners enjoying that menu with a wine flight to accompany it was something to behold! Our choices were from the al a carte menu, & they where great too. Lots of choice of meat, fish, vegetarian & vegan, with special desserts. Service was goodMore

We booked for our first visit for a Friday night and had always been wanting to try the tasting menu. We were sat upstairs which was cold/drafty and non atmospheric! There wasn’t the same buzz as downstairs and the music couldn’t be heard either. The...food was lovely, however took 30 minutes to get our first drink (the first course arrived before our drinks) and the service was incredibly slow generally. it was as if we had been forgot about as we were upstairs. There were not any staff upstairs to grab the attention at any point unless they were bringing up customers food or drinks. We would return for the food, but would definitely ask to get placed downstairs, as for the money we spent, we felt like we had been forgotten about as customers and didn’t feel like we’d had a great dining experience.More

We were really looking forward to visiting this restaurant as they had new premises and we thought they couldn’t improve. But so disappointed in the taster menu, the ambiance not so good and despite newly opened things like toilet roll holders broken etc. Then the...final straw when a huge family gathering arrived and took over the free spaces. The children with feet up on tables disgusting. Staff out of their comfort zone and clueless to take control. It was far from pleasant and we couldn’t wait to leave.More

Enjoyed everything about this meal. Reasonably priced. Excellent presentation and quality of ingredients. Surroundings are smart, not fussy and feels relaxed. The dishes are packed with flavour and meticulously prepared. Starter portions were good. I Recommend the Tandoori Prawn starter - stunning.

What can i say about this restaurant !! Wow . The menu is limited compared to your normal Indian restaurants ,But that's good in many ways , For starters i had the Tandoori Prawns they were large and spicy if i had to give a...negative side could be hotter than warm . My wife had the Mattar Scallops which looked great and tasted great . I must point out my wife is not a spicy eater and a member of the staff/manager gave some great advice on how spicy the dish would be and even offered to make it less spicy for her which really makes you feel that this restaurant really believes in customer satisfaction , Now the mains my wife had Nalli ka Gosht which is a type of Lamb shank and that went down well with her too , I had Chicken Chettinadu which has 18 spices and the Chicken was tended and moist 10 out 10 for me and the peshwari naan was die for .I'm a lover of Indian ice cream and many of the restaurants have bought in Kulfi which is not that good ,But here they make their own and the Pistachio was one of the best i have ever eaten . So a big thank you for a great meal and service and i will be backMore

Seriously good food right here! We went for the 7 course taster (meat - vegetarian and vegan options available). 1st course was incredibly inventive, the chicken was incredible and the monkfish, sublime. Also, who said Indian desserts weren't good? The dessert here was amazing! Fast,...friendly service, very well priced and laid back. If you want to try high end Indian cuisine, this is the place to go!More

An exceptional fine dining Indian restaurant. The food quality was amazing which coupled with excellent service made a very enjoyable experience. We also had the flight of wine which paired brilliantly with each course. This is the best Indian food I have every eaten, can't...wait to eat here again.More

Exceptional Indian restaurant, standard of food is extremely high. Go for the taster menu as they accompany each course with a suitable wine. My wife and I both thought we’d struggle with some of the courses as we aren’t really into seafood. How wrong can...you be. The monkfish and clams were sensational. What makes this place even more delightful is the waiters who will give you a brief summary of the dishes p,us a few words on why the accompanying wine was chosen. And they get it right. Best Indian food I’ve had.More
