This is a simple restaurant, always busy, good service, always great food. We would dine here at least twice every 3 weeks. Friendly service. Great quality food and plenty of it.

The title pretty much sum it up. We have had takeaways on and off from here for many years. Chicken Tikka Masala was the most recent and usual it was good. never anything to complain. Safe bet for takeaways.
