Visit here with family often. Excellent staff, food and atmosphere. Would highly recommend for any occasion. My favourite dish is the pathia curry, one of the best tasting curry's I've tasted and I eat a lot of Indian food!

Have been a few times now to eat in the restaurant and ordered takeaways, we've ordered something new each time and have never been disappointed! They bring out a sample of the sauce to taste first to ensure the heat is to your liking which I think is a great touch. I would recommend the sizzling fish platter to start!!

We dropped in here for this months curry club outing. Have to say the food was good and it was a nice touch that they gave us a taster of our main, whilst we had our starters, to make sure they were the right heat and taste. Staff were helpful and friendly and the food delivered in a timely manner.... More

Good service and probably one of the best Indian meals I've had for a long time. The Tandoori prawns are sublime!

We use this place regularly and have never had a bad meal or service. All the dishes taste very different and their regional specialities are great. I didn't have any food this good in 3 months in India a few years back. Great service too. If you're eating in they bring a little sample of each dish out before its... More
