We ordered a takeaway this evening and although the portions were generous, my dish was wrong. I ordered lamb tikka masala and got a korma, I even checked the receipt to make sure. My boyfriends dish, lamb podina was nice but not the best one he'd had. My lamb was a little over cooked and a bit tough. I'd of... More

Smashing little place with delicious food. The prawn puree starter was yummy and my main phall dish was gorgeous. The proprietors were discreet yet obliging. I'm a sucker for good food, a pleasing ambiance and lovely hosts.
