Ate here last month. Lovely service. My lamb was a bit tough and before I knew it I had a new curry (which was excellent) and I wasn't charged for it.

We live in Nottingham and whenever we come to Scarborough we make sure we have a visit to this little treasure. The food is excellent, the staff friendly and welcoming and frankly, for the price, you can’t do better. Absolutely superb; wish we lived closer!
