Best Dahl Ever

I do like a nice curry and this little place is just a curry lovers dream. We ordered masala and the dahl and mine was delicious, not sure about the chicken but the hubby loved it. You can also get takeout here which we have been doing since and it always seems to taste just as good. If you... read more

This was a great place for a tasty Indian dinner at a reasonable price. Unfortunately the service was a bit average, and the ambiance was lacking (there wasn't even music playing). But if you're looking for decent takeaways or a casual night out this would be an option.

Used to be a regular here and always had amazing experiences while Peggy was the owner. Went here last night and was extremely disappointed with the night. Firstly, me and my wife were sitting down and talking to each other in our native tongue when the owner and some guy who were laying back on the table next to us... More

I have been coming here for years and have loved it. New owners, and things aren't looking good. Disinterested service, food slow to come out, and no interaction with customers by new owners. To top it off, numbers on the tables a la coffee shop,... Horrible . I hope they can lift their game before they slide down the rating.... More

We came here to find good Indian restaurant. We ordered chicken tikka and Dahl, it was yummy. Nice woman who always checked on us how was the food. The down side bit is they need more waiter/waitress who know what's going on. Poor lady she had to it by herself :(

We loved having dinner here. The restaurant decor certainly isn't anything fancy, but the food is amazing and the owner is beautiful! She will visit your table personally and ensure you are enjoying your evening. We loved one of the sauces and she even offered to give us the recipe. There is something enjoyable about great food made by great... More

Great range on the menu, the meals timing for 4 of us was acceptable, food was very good along with the portion, wouldn't say it was the best we have visited but good enough for us to return for another meal. The staff are absolutely gorgeous.
