Our favourite place to eat in Bishop, either a romantic night, just the two of us, or with family & friends. Food is always top notch 👍

Popped in on Saturday night for a curry and had the mixed platter sizzler and chicken bhuna. As usual the food was great. Like going here as always a good atmosphere, very pleasant staff and good value for money. Excellent
