Again found good food & service , I have no qualms in recommending The KM. In this area we are blessed with several good restaurants but Madan and his team not only make the most delicious food, they also provide you with supremely warm welcome, great survive and excellent value for money...Highly Recommend..Cheers

I am very happy to recommend this restaurant for any one looking for something delicious to eat..! Not only was the food great but the service went above and beyond good, we ordered a take away meal however while we waited they provided us with a little complimentary drink unasked. Nothing with this meal could be faulted, once again thanks... More
