“Fresh-tasting and unusual Indian food is served by welcoming staff” at this Lanes subcontinental which has a sizeable and dedicated local following. “It can confuse visitors as it’s not your standard curry house” (“I’ve seen groups come in, look at the menu and leave, which is a shame as they are missing a wonderful experience”).

With its “fabulous-looking and gorgeous-tasting food”, this “lovely” Lanes curry house is “not just a step up from the average Indian, it’s a leap, hop and long-distance jump!”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
