Returned here after a couple of years and the food is even better now. Quality and quantity spot on. Really tasty curries and lovely chips. Madras is nice and spicy. The staff are friendly and will always do their best for you. This is my favourite Indian restaurant in town!

While it was slightly strange that we were literally the only customers in the restaurant, our friend informed us that it's usually overflowing when she has a meal there. The food was... More

A quiet, cosy little restaurant. Amazing tasting food and a great choice of drinks. The staff are warm and friendly and its very well priced! Ive eaten here many times before and its my preferred Indian restaurant. I travel over 12 to get here, and i'd travel more if I had to! Take a chance, it will not disappoint!
