The vegetable samosas were delicious as was the naan. The butter chicken was good but the Bombay curry had little taste and certainly little curry flavour. We ordered medium as there was no hot option. It really needs to be spiced up.

Really nice food with good options. Prices were ok as well. We had to wait quite a while for our food to come out which was disappointing but apart from that the experience was good.

The food was tasty and reasonably priced BUT the service was very slow. This could have been because they were very busy and it was a Friday night.

Not really. Jeans are fine. Probably wouldn't wear shorts and thongs.
