Came here one night and would definitely go back. Food was delicious and we couldn't move by the end of it. The naan bread was particularly very appetizing, as well as the Rogan Josh curry. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

We had a mix of four starters were were all tasty. Particularly the dips that came with the popadoms. Between us we enjoyed lamb korma, chicken bhuna, chicken karahi and chicken tikka masala. Each of them very tasty and packed with flavour. Alongside we had garlic, cheese and pashwari naan which were all good but slightly burnt. Good quality food,... More
