It is mostly used by locals. This curry house was very traditonal inside and the 2 baltis we had with mushroom rice, bead and poppadums was a taste of home... More

We first went to this restaurant back in 2004 and every time we go back it's consistently amazing. The staff are very attentive and helpful but the food is fantastic.

We are always made welcome at this restaurant which we have always found to be the best Indian experience in town. Excellent cuisine well presented with an authentic taste, especially the tandoori dishes and probably the best pappadoms in the world!

Really enjoyed our meal this evening. Managed to get a table as it was very busy. Lovely atmosphere and our service from Jamil was fantastic. Not always likely to come across someone who wants to provide the best service they can and he was excellent. Food and service was great.

Its a restaurant serving curries. Got to be honest, its not special. If fact, I'd only describe it as a tourist restaurant. The sauce was thin with little content. It was bland and the nan bread was thin, crisp and not worth eating. A very low to average experience.
