It’s “rare to eat Indian cuisine made to such high standards and with an imaginative touch to the food”, but one place you can is this sophisticated Clifton operation (with Bath spin-off); “the decor is stylish and nothing like the traditional look”, while the “fragrant” food is more than a match for it (not least “superb” pies “with all sorts of curried delights under the lid”).

The “well-cooked and interesting” “Moghul-style cuisine” at this slick Clifton outfit (and its Bath spin-off) is “a big change from usual Indian restaurants”, with “incredible spice balances”. Top Tip – “the monkfish starter is tops!”

For a “memorable special-occasion meal”, this “sophisticated” Clifton operation (with a branch in Bath) is just the job, offering “top-end Indian cooking that is pricey, but well worth the money for the flavour and spicing”.

“No flock wallpaper here”, but a “classy” and “tastefully decorated” spot in Clifton. The food is also “like a work of art” and “tastes as good as it looks”“spicy, interesting and not too hot”. (It also has a branch in Bath).

For 33 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).
