A small casual restaurant that served up delicious flavours and plenty to eat. The mixed starters is enough for a main if you don't have a big appetite. The chilli chicken options have amazing flavour and well presented.

Ordered two mild Butter Chicken meals for takeaway. Got them home and found them to have no flavor at all. Tasted bland and boring. Will not be returning.
