The waiter was very helpfull and our food was served by the chef himself. The whole atmosphere of the place was very enjoyable. This is a very popular restaurant which was very busy.

There tends to be quite large parties friends/ families go so the noise level is always quite high not so good if you want something a little more... More

A firm favourite of ours,one of the best curry houses. Chicken tikka garlic balti,yum yum! Good service and the best naans in the world! The only downside for me is the drinks are a tad pricey.
