    When using the tastecard be warned! We asked in advance and they confirmed as long as you pay cash! When we went to pay the barman was insistent that we were told the rest of the party had to pay cash. That wasn't the case.

    He then became abusive! Literally verbally abusing a pregnant woman over £7!

    The whole situation was embarrassing and a joke!

    Never been spoken too so poorly and the member of staff was borderline threatening!

    Customer service was awful!!!

    Avoid at all costs "

    The service and food have always been fantastic here, being able to use the taste card midweek is great for an impromptu bout of food apathy! Would recommend the Pathia as a really tasty curry. Thanks :-) "

    " Dined here on Wednesday 2nd July 2014. What a difference this place is from 'ordinary' Indian type restaurants. Splendid service and something different on the menu, but they still had the old favourites to fall back on just in case you are not too adventurous. Well worth a visit, highly recommended. "
