We decided to have a set meal for 2. Not only was it good value, every course was amazing. This has to be the best Indian meal we have ever had.

I visited this restaurant recently with my daughter, my friend and her daughter. The premises were clean and tidy and the staff were polite and efficient. All food and drinks were ordered at the table and brought to us. It is an Indian restaurant so the food is a vast selection of curries. You choose the meat, sauce and rice... More

Do not be put off by the exterior. This is a comfortable, friendly restaurant serving very good Indian cuisine. I went with 6 friends on a friday night. It was wise to book but there were still a few vacant table. The Indian restaurant next door was practically empty. That should tell you something. It was pretty standard Tandoori Restaurant...
