We enjoyed ordering the "set meal" where it will have a description for dinner for two, etc. This had a good variety of appetizers and main entree. This helped us since we don't know all the names...

Starters were very nice to begin with, but it all went down hill from there onwards, Extremely slow for mains and the staff were more bothered about playing on there phones.

went with a touring cricket party of 12 boys and 16 adults. Had the so called buffet ,but first a large plate of stale poppadoms were served to the table along with some watery chutneys. I had one bite of that filth and then made my way across the disgusting dirty carpet to the vats of 'curry'.These were indescribably bad,Thin.... More

Ordered food for delivery, should have been £15, online said 20% discount would be added. Total was £28, no explanation for this. Food was awful, meat was poor quality. Just avoid!!!
