A must visit on your trip to Derry. Dishes a little milder to suit local taste , which means the Chicken Jalfrezi is just right for me. Same recipe for the last 25 years , and I hope they never change it.

A curry here is well worth a try. Delicious food and definitely pay another visit if back in the city. The staff were very friendly and the food orders did not take long to arrive plus was not very expensive.
