The best Indian restaurant around this area. Every time we go back to UK we always eat here or order a take away. Standard is always high. Staff friendly and service is great This is one restaurant we miss whilst living abroad.

Very disappointed due to my last visit. Majority of the staff were stressed out and rushing around, was an uncomfortable atmosphere. Tables were extremely close together. The food was average. Disappointing since me and my family used to enjoy a meal here regularly.
