Mean, uncomfortable and unwelcoming. Two chuppatis cost £6. The same price for the smallest samosa you have ever seen. The fish curry was made from an un-named but clearly cheap fish, which tasted slimy. A lamb curry from Maharastra was certainly different from what you might be served in the typical Bengali restaurant that are so prolific. But the only spice used seemed to be chilli and it lost all flavour other than a burning sensation.
There was nobody to take your coats and a table was just indicated, by the wave of a hand. The tables are so close together that the waiters inevitably barge into you when serving the next-door table. This is made worse by the fact that the many take-away clients are sat at tables next to you, even though the restaurant was half empty. The seats are not comfortable and the service is mediocre by Indian standards.
Atmosphere is cold and clinical, with only a huge photo of the Taj Mahal and a statue of a Hindu god to give an Indian feel.
In short, poor value for money. It has pretensions to rise above the typical fare offerred by the Bangladeshi restaurants. It does so but only really in price terms..
