We went for a quick curry after a day outdoors. The service was good and the food was tasty. I had the tandoori with naan and rice.

Small portions of pickles etc with poppadoms. Curry had strange taste . Plenty of chicken though. Waiters need to learn not to interrupt when people are talking and not to lean across customers. Walk round to each customer.

8 of us walked in on a Friday night without a booking, two tables were put together after a short wait, we the had a first class meal, the staff were friendly and polite who made time to explain the menu. Great little place possibly the best Indian in PZ
