Called in to order a take away with my son. We had a beer while we waited. Food was delicious and staff really helpful. It's not the cheapest but it's among the best in Ipswich.

A really enjoyable experience. Excellent service. Specialist bangladeshi meals a little different, well prepared and presented. Restaurant environment conducive to a very relaxing and practical dining experience

Waited over an hour for our meal to arrive, only to be served with bland, over cooked food. They also charged over £4 for a pint of coke! This is our second bad experience here and we will not return. Get a new chef guys!More
