One of my favourites with some stunning starters in chilli paneer, gobi manchurian and casava chilli. Decent main portions - usual fare. Charging £1 per poppadam is excessive. Parking is as always terrible. Onky thing tgat puts me off going here.

A lonely atmosphere! Food is a little overpriced but the food was delicious. Everything was flavoursome and exactly what we expected from a top restaurant!
