Very poor, had dhansak chicken, very mild and tasteless yet it's meant to be fairly hot, I am a long time curryholic I know my curries so I won't be using this place again.

I visited here on recommendation and had a great meal. Nice people and obviously well supported by locals. One word of warning, they tend to be on the spicy side and hot means hot so keep that in mind when ordering. Will be back!

I am a curry nut, this was by far the best curry I have eaten in a long, long time. Unfortunately we live 100 miles away, so repeating the experience is nigh on impossible, unless they deliver? Lol
