Usually have a take away but decided to sit in with our family. Found a dead bug in our poppadoms-the waiter took them away and said they wouldn't charge us for the one's we ate (very kind of them).

I had the mixed vegetable Dupiaza, which tasted bland. This normally means that the food has been frozen or reheated, it was also too oily. The service was good and the Restaurant has a nice busy atmosphere. The food is reasonably priced and if you're not too fussy about your food it's worth a visit.
