Fantastic food and excellent value for money. I would highly recommend a trip to this restaurant. The atmosphere is relaxed and calm and the tables are not crowded together, unlike some other restaurants in the local area. Great place to take the family and a welcome attitude to children.

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.
