We are regulars so decided to host a celebratory meal here for family for my husband’s birthday. Service superb, food fantastic and staff couldn’t do enough to help. Also, very reasonably priced.

Food here can be very good. Sometimes it's variable though - sometimes too salty for out tastes. We would prefer more fresh ingredients and higher quality. However, service is always excellent with friendly staff. Cosy feeling in the restaurant.

We were the only ones there which meant we had the undivided attention of the staff and the food was very swift in coming. The food was delicious as usual and came to a very reasonable £53 for three including drinks, desserts and poppadoms.

This is our local Indian and we regularly get delivery from here. It's always faster than expected, the service is friendly and, most importantly, the food is delicious, we've never had a bad curry and we often vary our orders. Would definitively recommend.
