Excellent family friendly restraurant. Managed to make my boy a special freshly cooked dairy, gluten and tomato free curry which he loved. This will now become a regular family outing. Staff are all very friendly and helpful.

Very nice clean and tidy restaurant, although very small, so book in advance, but that's not a bad thing, as it makes a good quiet night out. Good quality food, the Lamb balti was the best I have ever tasted, had quite a kick to it. Bit pricey, but that's the same where ever you go, but the quality of... More
