Disappointed considering the reviews here are good. Watery onions in my curry and very little meat. Not a patch on the Cochin.

I have been here a few times recently and always come out full and pleased with the service. The value menu runs every day with a slight increase on Saturday's . Give it a try, Bombay potato is very good.
