On the evening we visited the food was consistently good across the board, especially the starters which were high quality though not particularly spicy - just very fresh and tasty in every other respect, for which there is something to be said. The accompanying mint-yoghurt sauce was nothing special, however.

The main courses, ordered apna style, were probably a bit too surface-hot, and seemed better at the time of eating than on reflection - no doubt something to do with the high post-prandial fart, burp and indigestion factors.

The nans were a decent average.

Due credit having been given, I have to say that this is not a restaurant in which I found it easy to relax. It gives the impression that it is God's gift - a self-opinion that sits badly with the intrusive Richard Claydeman-style Muzak and kitsch wall art.

This is a borderline case, but at the moment I don't feel comfortable placing this restaurant in a four-star category. There was just enough wrong not to give it the benefit of the doubt. Also, being newly refurbished, we may be in a honeymoon period, and if things start to slide it could quickly end up like a hundred others.
