Not the best curry in the world, but it's local, affordable and they are generally friendly. Curry is pretty standard, can be bland. Does the trick in a pinch.

A large menu choice makes ordering difficult at times, but the description of each dish is well presented & clear. The food is excellent & more than enough for the normal diner. The surroundings are a little tired & the dinning room is not to spacious, but this is made up for by the friendliness of staff & the excellent... More

on entering the staff greet you and are very friendly and helpful they do like to be on hand for you and the food is very nice, the atmosphere is good, the curry that I had was the chicken murch which is a fairly hot dish and it was really nice if you can stand hot try this dish.

Food was good and service was quick. Chicken we had was over done and too dry but the sauce made it ok. Good naan breads and the starters are good too.

The restaurant is fine and the staff were professional. Speed of service was not a problem and the pint of beer was fine. The problem was the curry. Lacking in flavour and just tasting very peppery. I have probably been spoilt having lived in Bradford, but this was rather disappointing and I will not rush back.

I have had takeaways from here several times over the past year and I have always really enjoyed the good, it has always been well flavoured and the meat has been nice and tender.

I had chicken tikka madras the Mrs chicken tikka bhuna and both we the same looking tomato slop with pieces of chicken. Rice and naan where ok but the curry should be the star of the show. Complete waste of... More
