The waitress was cute. In the case that you are not interested in lewd comments. Ask Nick (the tall one) for my number.

The waitress had a cracking bum! The curry wasn't the only thing that was hot...the radiator was on full whack too. Food was top notch, would definitely go back.

Couldn't believe it when we arrived at our normal time and the car park was full. We have been visiting since day one and still rate it as the best Indian around. The new menu is great, can't wait to try everything. Great service and attentive staff. See you soon
