We often eat here as a,family and the food never disappoints. I think they rely more on takeout orders as the restaurant is almost always empty.

We live close to here and wouldn't go anywhere else for a takeaway. You get a bottle of wine if you spend 40 pound which is handy if there are a few of you. Great range of specials and the naan breads are divine
