First time ordering from here and certainly won't be the last. Order arrived very quickly and the food was very hot. Had the chicken tikka masalla. It was one of the best I've had for a long time. The delivery driver was friendly too.

We visited here after a hair trial for my daughters wedding. We were greeted so warmly. The food was the best I have had in Chelmsford. Every dish was tasty and an extensive menu. Service also excellent. Would highly recommend.
