Wouldnt hesitate to recommend Arjee Bhajee at Cranford st, staff are exceptionally friendly, catered to everything I asked for. Best place ever for a meal. Food was amazing, service was with a smile, can't wait to go back, am talking my work place into booking for our next work dinner. Keep up the good work Cranford st.

This is one of my local restaurants so good for a quick after work takeaway. $10 for the basic dishes, with rice. I particularly enjoy the bhajees as a snack. Serving size is generous.

Love this place, had never been before and decided to try because we had it in the entertainment voucher. The food is fantastic, although the curries could do with smaller pieces or chicken and more of the meat. We will definitely be back!
