We visited mid week and the restaurant was empty. But the food was good and also good value. The ambiance and decor rather tired and stairs down had fag ends on etc. I would suggest keeping these clean.

I organise a large group booking here a couple of times a year. The staff and the food are always excellent. We wouldn't bother going anywhere else! Great value, great curry.
