Used to eat here regularly before the big bang, when they went upmarket and stopped catering for the ordinary man. It was always good, and reasonably priced, but not now!
Tried it with a few friends for a special occasion, and whilst I knew it had gone expensive, I hadnt realized how expensive, and how the portion sizes had reduced in the same proportion. Two "scoops" of Khulfi (about 1" in diameter, lost on a huge plate) for £7.50? Try this. A vegetarian platter to start, £14.95, consisting of one small onion bhaji, one spoonful of Bombay potato and 2 small samosas. Nothing really below £20 for mains, all very small helpings with very little meat, except for the tandoori chicken which was cheaper, but consisted of 2 wings and precious little else. Speciality nans (admittedly nice, but small) £4.95. And to rub salt in the wounds, a compulsory 12.5% service charge.
Sorry, I wont be going again, and I certainly wont be recommending it to my friends. Its just not right for a back street in Cheltenham, and should be in central London to justify itself. I really wanted to be blown away.......
