We walked along the street and found The Old Police Station having passed... read more

The restaurant location itself was in a very nice place, the staff were very welcoming and helpful. Although for the price curry portions were small, and containing only a few pieces of meat.

A beautiful restaurant full of atmosphere and a great menu. All the usual dishes are there but the specials are exactly that. The food is presented beautifully and I can not fault the flavours of all the dishes. The staff are very friendly too making it a great place to eat. I would highly recommend

The place is nice and the waiter was brilliant, however the food wasn't tasty. I had prawn biriyani but I didn't enjoy it. My boyfriend enjoyed his though. Shame as I was really looking forward to it.
