Book at last minute via 5pm. We both had a 3 course meal and the bill came to £32. Food was amazing and the restaurant itself is lovely and cosy. Only hiccup we had was a rather long wait for our main. It apparently was a problem in the kitchen, and the waiting staff kept us informed. It wasn't

The pork and the mac and cheese were both very salty.

Expectations not met- ministrone soup underwhelming/tasteless and lasagne nothing to write home about.
The Raan-e-Changeji is an exceptional leg of lamb with delicious spices. It is slow cooked but is a very large piece of meat so either share it or be really hungry. We took a doggy bag. The other chicken tikka dishes our party had were magnificent too. Not cheap but good food.

Third time I have had a meal here with different family members and friends. Staff are always pleasant and helpful. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced.

Love this bar, it's great for after work drinks and food. The tapas offer is great value and the food is good. The staff were really friendly, one guy let us try his homemade triple sec before we left for free. It was fairly quiet when we arrived at 6, but got slightly busier later.
