This restaurant was recommended to us by a local shop owner and we were not disappointed.I would go as far as to say this was the nicest Indian meal we have had for some time! If we lived in the area we would be regular customers.

Really friendly and helpful staff. Willing to alter dishes to your taste. All the food was tasty and the portions were generous. We drank quite a few beers and the bill was £109 for 4 of us.

Sorry but it's just not good enough to serve the kind of food that you served tonight. If you want a rough and ready curry go to the one on steep hill. It's better and tastier.
