This is one of my favourite Indian places in the town centre - handy, tasty, and a good value for money. Chicken tikka is a great starter if you like meat - soft, juicy, and spiceful, but not too spicy to enjoy. Also their biryani are amazing. One drawback is that, recently, laasi became somewhat diluted and lost its former thickness. If laasi were as good as before, I'd have given nine points for the food. Don't look for a romantic dine out, here, but you can expect an affordable, wholesome food here.

Went last week, had been recommended to go by quite a few friends. Ordered haleem and my friends had some kebabs all the food was excellent. Waiters could have been mire enthusiastiv but we were seated quickly. Bit spicy but the manager recommended the mango which really was some of the best lassi i've ever had. Only cost about £8 per person not bad at all. Atmosphere wasnt great but food made up for it.

Very nice kababs (especially with the generous helping of mint chutney and sliced onion rings) - authentic desi dhaba from north india. They could increase the size of the portions though. Also very nice naans.

This place is fantastic for its kebabs and fresh naan. Its pretty basic inside but you go here for the food not the suroundings. Basically its what we in India call a Dhaba - i.e. somewhere you go to order one or two specialities. The sikh kebabs are excellent. The Nihari ranges from briliant to so so - usually it has a great texture but the last time I ordered it had been made into a smooth paste and wasnt great. Hope thats a temporary aberration.

They also have the usual curry favourties here for non-Asian diners but avoid them - thats not what this place is about. you dont go here for Chicken Tikka masala or vegetable dishes. Its all about the kebabs and Nihari.

Best thing to order is sikh kebab and naan. Superb and better than the famous Lahore Kebab House.

Sort out your Nihari guys and you'll get a 10.

Service was quite poor and the management were not very helpful. We ordered the Nihari dish, which turned up with two small pieces of meat (for £8!). When we complained, we were fobbed off by the manager, who told us to order another dish if we needed more food...he then proceeded to sit back at his table and chat loudly with the rest of his waiters. Useless...

The food was ok. Nothing special. A bit over-zealous on the spices - left feeling quite bloated even though we didn't eat all that much. Quite pricey too - looking at min. £15 a head for a basic meal.
