The restaurant was very busy, which is a good sign that the food is good and the staff provided a good service so the food was worth the wait. The food was better than other restaurants that we've been to. Definitely recommend!

We have recently moved into the area & have visited a few times. Food is always tasty. We have now realised that they seem to use hotter spices than any of the others so choose something less spicy than usual-it will still be hot!

As vegan requirements are very specific, I would suggest you contact the restaurant directly and enquire.
Do they cook steak or chicken? This missus won't do curry? Thanks
