We have had a takeaway from here and the service was excellent. The choices are very good and the food arrived promptly and was hot and very tasty. We have tried various Indian takeaways in the area and this is our favourite.

popped in for a sneaky quick curry and left stuffed and totally satisfied again! Service top notch and curries were great. Try the Saag Paneer.....it's bloody lovely!

If you don't like curry but like mediocre stew eat here. If you like very mild curry with limited foreign flavour have the vindaloo. I can't believe this was recommended to me. Oh yeah totally overpriced too.

This was accompanied by the delightful food we received. All of these as well as a clean and refreshing atmosphere led to the perfect evening.... More

The food was very bland and lacking in flavour, The spice was very weak The customer service was very poor and abrupt, Will not be using the ali raj again as there are many nicer places locally, Don't be fooled by how the restaurant looks.
