Visited here on a Monday night. Good quality food and good service. Meal for three with starters, mains, and drinks ( not alcoholic) £40 which given the amount of food was good value.

Easy to Park at Sainsburys, nice decor, attentive service, and tasty indian food at reasonable prices. We have been many times over the last four years and have never been disappointed.
