The usual dose of curry!

Haven't eaten here for 3 weeks as I was away but it is still as delicious as ever! It is very busy but very worth the wait, I don't understand why people complain about waiting to eat good food!!

I've never had an experience quite like it. It's unique and special; a real escapism. The staff are fantastic and nothing is too much for them. The food is second to none- I've never tasted Indian food so authentic. I'm sure even India would struggle to offer me an experience quite like it!
