Had early bird menu at £15.95. Good value but food disappointing. Korai was very bland. Jalfrazi was extremely hot not normal for this dish. Chicken chat starter was very strange, full of coconut, not the normal recipe.

I have been coming here for 20 years. Ticks all boxes for a classic curry. Service excellent. I would recommend madras and the saag aloo.
