Top quality curries. Great variety to choose from. Always friendly service. You can see through to the kitchen where you see the chefs working hard and having fun. Highly recommend the paneers.

Five of us went for dinner last night and had a very enjoyable meal. The surroundings are good and the service and food were very good. We will revisit shortly.
