A great spot for a curry in Cambridge. One of the best there is on offer in the city, with friendly and welcoming staff.

Completely average curry. Disinterested staff. My curry was mainly sauce with a couple of chunks of chicken. Would not return.

My family and I have been coming to this restaurant and using their take away for 15 years. The service is wonderful, accommodating and very friendly. The food is delicious with lots of flavour and plenty of choice. I would definitely recommend it to friends.

The food was excellent, very tasty but the service was very slow. We were a table of six but waiting nearly an hour for our meals was not good.
