Ate here with 9 of us after an Easter Sunday on the beers on the last day of our trip (the pub over the road from this is exceptional by the way). With the night getting later we piled in here despite the locals (and the Tripadvisor reviews) warning us it would be dreadful. Fair enough to them for accommodating... More

Visited here on the recommendation of the b and b where we stayed. Restaurant was very quiet apart from a few calls for takeaways. Food was average in my opinion but reason for my poor rating is due to them not accepting card payments. This was not explained until the bill was presented. As it happens, I had enough cash...

If you are looking for atmosphere and service it is perhaps not the ideal place but if you want a very good curry then this is the place to go! I have to say that on a Saturday night in the thriving area where a few restaurants had queues outside it was a little disconcerting to find a restaurant which... More

Ordered takeaway for 6 adults and 5 children - Order placed and ready on the button of 7pm as promised - Not a small order. Supplied in rugged box to hold multiple dishes along with additional pops to ensure we over ate during the evening

It looks like this place has had some bad reviews but our takeaway was delicious. Extra poppadoms and free onion bhajis were a nice surprise and the chicken tikka dhansak was lovely. No complaints here and would return.

During a short break in the area, I had promised myself at least one curry. Disappointed to learn that a) there was only one restaurant locally and b) it wasn't highly rated. But I needed my curry. My takeaway (chicken vindaloo plus sundries) was prepared quickly, was well cooked and was a good size. It was hot enough, but the... More

I was apprehensive after being told by some friends it wasn't very good, and arriving in August on a Saturday night and the restaurant being pretty empty, it didn't bode well. However I was pleasantly surprised, the food was pretty good, the service was pretty good not much atmosphere though. All in all, it was pretty good. I would go... More

The faulty towers service was mildly amusing but the humour diminished when we had to hand cash over for a dreadful meal. Worst curry we've ever had !

3 bits of chicken and some curry sauce slapped on a plate does not count as a curry, also the bar looks like something out of del trotters lounge, all in all useless food not a great experience.
