We visited this restaurant with friends, I for the first time. Found the staff to be very friendly, especially the waiter who served us. The food was cooked to perfection and there was plenty of it. Will definitely be doing return visits.

Always find picking a curry restaurant out of my area difficult and nervously. Need not have worried at all- great place with very nicely prepared food and great staff- the two guys were efficient but with very pleasant demeanour and a lot of fun. Wouldn't hesitate to visit here again and recommend to anyone. A 10 min walk from the... More

Visited with friends on a Saturday evening. Table was booked and we were seated right away. Ordered Chicken Saga Walla, Shishkil, Vegetarian Curry, pickle tray all the usual accompaniments. Food was red hot, absolutely delicious and plentiful. Staff are brilliant, very pleasant and knowledgeable. Service was fantastic. Definitely a restaurant to be recommended and re-visited.

Used to love coming here but was really disappointed. A friend had hardly any chicken in a chicken meal and I had chops that were missing the meat and really tough. Did get money back but no explanation. Had to wait ages as well. Seems like when they get busy the service suffers. It's a real shame. I will try... More
