Dined here about 18 months ago and had a fabulous meal then so glad to see that it still lives up to its reputation. Great staff, super service and some of the best Indian food anywhere. On my list for another return visit soon.

Fantastic food, brilliant service which was very attentive. Haven't been for months yet the owner recognised me. Perfect all round experience and food is exceptional. Highly recommended - be patient to get a table - it will be worth the weight.
