Overall it doesn't do anything fantastically innovative but we had a good feed for a reasonable price and will no doubt return to check out the banquet properly.

I wanted to say - the chicken here is free range! And as far as I can tell, it hasn't increased the prices compared to anyone else's battery offering either so you've no excuse.
We had a take-away (collected) last week. It was really nice. I nearly had to cancel my order after they fed me all the popps and chutneys in the world while I waited then they put a pot of each of them in the bag at no charge, added more popps, still no charge. And a salad. I haven't seen that done for a while. We didn't finish it all.
I won't go on about what we had because it's each to his own on a curry menu, I think, but it was very good.
They were really nice too. Completely new management from Viva Goa but I saw some of the same waiting staff.
Hope it does well.

Would highly recommend and will use as often as the waistline permits (sorry Shelina, I just fancy a change!).

Very exciting menu and its good to see them have some midweek offers - always a great idea to get the weak-willed curry eaters into having a naughty curry

In fact i wouldnt use the word naughty I prefer the word necessity !

I'm with Dazza... *Every* night is a potential curry night! I'm really interested in trying this place out. The missus could do with some cheering up, so a midweek ruby may be just the ticket! Possibly at the CP Tandoori (but I must say Palace Spice is a mighty mighty adversary up the road).
Tired of curry, tired of life that's what I say.
I have to say not sure it's a wise business move to open a Tandoori restaurant when you have the long-established Palace Spice cutting the mustard so to speak a few doors down.
Brave and loyal are these guys

Effisio once mentioned how he and the owner of A Torre get together for coffee in the afternoons now and then... I can see that it works for those two places to be side by side, maybe for two good curry houses as well.

One 'course' is your carb of choice so it's not all huge course after huge course and one course would have been tea/coffee but we didn't get that far.
You have to add on £2 if you want fish at any point, which I did for my starter.
Perhaps a lower-priced banquet of fewer courses might be an option to put on the list. It was still a reduced price against ordering a few of the things individually, though. And perhaps change 'course' to 'item' because some of the options are not courses on their own, as above.
And I'll say it again - free-range chicken.
