Been here a few times and never disappointed! Last time was with a group of friends night before friends wedding. Food is excellent and the Thursday night special is not to be missed!

Ive had takeaways a few times which were always very good. Last night ate at the restaurant for a change and to be totally honest, can't remember ever having a better Indian meal anywhere. Everything was so tasty and cooked to perfection...chicken literally melted in my mouth. Perfect and very reasonably priced, too

It was reasonably priced, the only issue is there is nothing nearby if you... More

Since moving to the area this has been the 'Indian' of choice and it was very good. However the last two visits have been a nightmare. Firstly, in September, I found a piece of wire in my food. The manager was very apologetic and knocked the curry price off the bill, my thought was that any one can make a... More
