Just really consistently good traditional indian food. I tend to have deliveries mostly. I do eat in as well and the service is fine.

Have always enjoyed the food here. Good and fast service, and a nice atmosphere. Especially like the biryani here, very flavoursome where other places it can be quite bland

I always enjoy eating here. The staff are friendly and chatty and the food is really good. My favourite is the Rajistanin Chicken, but it's all good. My brother and I visited recently with friends and everyone loved it - see pictures.
