Enjoyed our meal here, we bought two different curries and in the end asked if we could take it home as the portions was big! Staff was very friendly and welcoming too

We were the only people there. The phone kept ringing with takeaway orders and delivery collections coming and going right next to us. The reception staff were friendly and efficient on arrival. We were shown to the downstairs window table, bit cramped and warm. So...More
