Good food, kind staff and reasonably priced!! It looks small as you walk in then it seems to open up into a beautiful, spacious restaurant! Well maintained and well worth a try if you're local! Support local businesses!! :)

Visited the night before the Calcutta Cup. Had booked on line but appeared to be some confusion about the booking - there was no table when we arrived. After about five minutes a suitable table was eventually found. After that the evening went well. Service was good, friendly and efficient. Food was excellent, well cooked and ample. Not high cuisine... More

Have not actually eaten in the restaurant but have ordered a lot of take aways. The standard of food is excellent, especially their lamb dishes. Everything I have had has been very good. For something a bit different try the keema rice. Delicious.

Have had many takeaways from this restaurant as well as sitting in. My only real complaint re a takeaway is due to it being so busy at weekends it can be quite a wait for your meal - testament to the popularity of the place there's a real buzz here at weekends. Have never had anything I did not think... More

Today we met up with friends for lunch. Although we live locally it has been a few years since we last dined here. The special lunch menu priced at £7.95 for two courses was excellent value with several dishes to choose from. Included in the price were poppadoms and dips. The food was delicious and the service friendly without being... More
