Came across this when we were looking for lunch. They do a $10 curry special that’s delicious and just the right amount. I had Butter Chicken and Deb had Chicken Tikka Masala. Delicious!

Food was good. Shame about the knifes, could do with being sharper. Hard to even cut a pie to eat. Great mushy peas
