Always try to find Indian restaurants in whatever Town or City I visit. This was a nicely spaced restaurant, service was great and waiters helpful. Food arrived quickly and was well presented, but above all it was good. Even found a starter I had not...More

We had never eaten at an Indian restaurant but the heavenly smell as we walked by brought us in. Being novices the waiter guided us on menu choices which were wonderful. We are now adding Indian food to our restaurant choices.

We have visited this restaurant twice, once in 2015 and most recently in 2017. The 2015 visit was brilliant, and set very high standards for the return visit this year, I was slightly apprehensive that it may be somewhat of a let down. Thankfully, it...More
