Me and my family get an Indian to take out from here maybe once in a while. It's quick service & always taste very nice. Everything I've ever ordered has been cooked perfectly & ive never had any complaints.

We decided to give the Sunday night buffet a go on our first visit to this restaurant. There were no starters available and the curry dishes looked to have no meat left in them, this was at 8.30pm, so not late. We had to take the decision to leave and eat elsewhere, which was disappointing to say the least. We... More

Starter ok. Main course cold and bland. Staff very rude on complaint In particular the lad with silly ponytail whom become aggressive and threatening. Told us to leave and that we are scum and have no money. My opinion is that there was no so called chef working that evening and they were heating up already prepared food !!!!

Service was quick and friendly, food was just average, good portion sizes, the only thing that stops me scoring the food higher is the beef dish, the beef was really chewy and quite unpleasant, we did mention it at the time.

We ordered Lamb Shank and Vegetable Madras as the mains, the menu is varied so there will be something to suit all tastes. The food was exactly as I like it, tasty with more bias on spice then pure heat. They must have an exceptionally talented chef as it really was to a very high standard. I see they are... More
