    You can never fault the food and service at Lime. Delicious.

    Had onion bhajis to start. Very nice. Then chicken tikka korma with pilau rice and garlic nan. It was very nice. Garlic nan was huge. I liked the fact that I could take my own alcohol. My son who is a fussy eater had the chicken Rogan Josh. He found the chicken a bit hard and chewy as if it had been frozen. The restaurant nicely laid out and service excellent. Not sure if I will try again.

    Stuck in a corner. Waited 40 mins for the main meal and when asked when the food would be coming, the manager said it's coming and walked off. Wrong dish served and manager not bothered but did take money off for the wrong meal. It was very busy but no excuse for lack of service. I would not go again.

    Lovely cheerful staff.

    The food is really good, very good value. Not a vast choice for vegetarians. Ok if you’re on a budget.
    What I didn’t like was being served a bottle of coke with a straw. Last time that happened I was 10 years old! Come on, a glass with ice isn’t so hard, was it to save washing up? Won’t be going again.

    Great quality and tasty meal.

    Always a great meal at Lime. My mother would not go anywhere else. Thanks.

    There were 5 of us in my party and all of the food was as ordered even the special orders where some of us wanted it milder than spicier. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were very attentive and pleasant.

    Really nice place and the food was decent. We had a mixed meat starter which some of the meat was cold, which should have been flame grilled. Main course was really good and spot on.

    Very friendly staf. Food was delicious not long to wait for our meal. Didn't rush you and value for money.

    Excellent food and service as always. Really recommend the leg of lamb (which needs at least 2 days notice to order). Brilliant selection of different curries. Great that you can take your own alcohol as this keeps the expense down. Looking forward to going again!

    Great food as always, lovey friendly staff and the service is excellent.
    Looking forward to coming again very soon. Tony & Denise.

    Fantastic food and service at Lime for our party to celebrate mother's 101st birthday. Nothing was too much trouble. The waiter even did
    impromptu conjuring tricks! Would recommend.

    Meal was really nice but felt we were rushed.

    Great food, went on a Tuesday night which is 2-4-1, so very good price and you can take your own drinks. The service was very good and the staff are really helpful, what more can you ask for!

    Review for Lime restaurant. Excellent food and service. We'll definately be returning and recommending to our friends

    We were all delighted by the warm reception, friendly atmosphere, and delicious meals, and very pleasantly surprised at the value for money. We were made to feel very welcome by the manager and staff and we could not fault any part of any of the meals. This is definitely on our list for a return visit, in the not too distant future.

    Booked a table at the lime restaurant for fathers day, we all had a perfect time, food so tasty and so fresh, we could not fault anything, free outside parking what more could you ask for. Looking forward to our next vist.

    After hearing a lot of good things about Lime we decided to book a table for the two of us and I have to say we were both impressed from start to finish. The food is absolutely delicious to the point that I'd say it's the best Indian restaurant we've ever been to and we've lived in the area for years. So glad we believed the hype as it more than lived up to our expectations. Will be booking a table for my birthday soon!

The Chef’s Specials include the Murgh Masala, a medium dish of slow-cooked chicken cooked in a rich sauce of caramelised onions, garlic and ginger; and the Mussalam, a leg of lamb that serves four which is marinated for 24 hours before being cooked in the tandoor, both of which are excellent choices. Finish off your meal with a delicious Indian classic such as Gulab Jamun: syrup balls flavoured with aromatic cardamom and pistachio, or a decadent dessert such as the Boston mud cake, topped with chocolate ganache.
