Went there with my partner looking for a good fish curry and can safely say that it was one of the best I have ever had. Fresh papadum and yellow rice with a rich fish curry including prawns, calamari, hake, mussels and crab. Ordered the mild and it was just right. Partner had the hake and calamari with chips -...

There are always specials on offer and there is no reason not to take the family out at least once a month. For a change we tried the sushi instead of the prawns and we were pleasantly surprised. The tempura prawn starter was... More

No one in our party was disappointed. The fish and seafood dishes were excellent and the chicken and red meat dishes ordered were very good. Portions... More
