Could not resist a visit seeing the ratings. Friendly staff but I would say prepare to book in advance. We had a chicken saag and a guinea fowl jalfrezi. Tastes like chicken I’d say. Very nice flavours.

As I'm not vegan myself, I'm not sure what provisions they can make specifically, but there was an extensive selection of vegetable, lentil and other dishes. They seem to be very helpful so fear not. You will enjoy it.
