Have had takeaways from here for many years, & to be fair, never had a problem. However last night, my husband & I both had bad stomach upsets after a couple of hours. Nearly a day later, & my husband is in bed, & I still feel dreadful. Will never risk this happening again.

Cannot fault this place, not much to say other than they act like every curry house should do. Quality food, on time, served hot, always nice and friendly staff.

Well worth finding if you like your curry house old school, me and Mrs Bignose with our youngest had a very nice banquet meal (on Thursdays) and I have no problems recommending this restaurant, x3 substantial meals and a bottle of wine for just over £40
