Had a takeaway with a group of about fifteen others. Ordered lamb vindaloo which although tasty was not in any way hot. I like a bit of a sweat from my curries and this one had nothing. Veggie sides and nan were tasty.

Me and my partner visited the restaurant based on trip advisor reviews. The food was amazing and the customer service was exceptional. The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. Highly recommended and would visit again!

1st signs were good as the place was packed. Poppadoms were brought to the table with a nice selection of dips. However the good news stops there, the curries were quite bland and un-spiced and the quality of chicken was not the best. A shame but I will try others before I go again.

We always eat here in a huge group and always bring our business here. Every single time without fail whatever time we book our table we are told we have to wait 20,30 or even 40 mins which is a joke and happens every single time

I have been here a number of times and every time is just simply fantastic. We have never used a menu, boss knows all, asking you how you like it and he has never got it wrong. The staff are very helpful and very tolerant of slightly drunk people. Would I visit again, silly question, most definitely!
