Pre-cooked chicken, microwaved poppadoms(!) and, though we both had supposed 'speciality' curries, we felt we got the same base sauce with a few bits mixed in. Even with all the corner-cutting service was slow - we've never had to wait 10 minutes just for the...More

From the outside, the cafe looks like a takeaway place. It primarily is, however, having a sit in meal, is suprising. The food is freshly prepared and delicious. The service is great too. So don't "judge a book by it's cover" and book a table.
