This place is epic. Bring cash as their card machine never works. Dishes are cheap and super tasty. Gets really busy on the usual nights so if you've got a big group book in advance. BYO too which is amazing.

It seems quite small and abit out of date but don't judge a book by it's cover, very nice food, friendly staff, would go again. The food is mild to medium spicy, would recommend.

Went here for dinner last night -- everything from the super friendly service to the absolutely delicious food was totally worth the drive from central London. We read about the crab curry in the article where we found this restaurant so had to try it...More

We went there asking for a table for 2. Head waiter was very rude and didn't even acknowledge us just yelling '25 min' and rushing us away. There were at least 6 free tables. Obviously this curry house is getting too much business so you...More
