Had a meal here with friends. Even though it is always busy the service was excellent. Friendly staff. The curry is amazing. Couldn't finish it all. Everyone at the table was very happy with their meal. I've been twice in last couple of months and will definitely be back

The food is reasonably priced also. The restaurant has a really nice ambience, and is so cosy. The staff are excellent there,... More

I had booked here a number of weeks ago for dinner for myself, my mother and my partner. We arrived at 6.25 and were welcomed and promptly seated at a lovely corner table. The atmosphere and decor were so relaxing and we felt so at home. The menu was fantastic. Such a great choice. We had a 3 course meal.... More
