I love this place. We do a work evening here once a month because its local and the food is great. The service can be spotty, but mostly they are good and good humoured. We usually turn up late and a group of 6 at...More

Having recently moved to the area, I figured I’d try the local curry provider. Sadly it will be my only visit. The chicken tikka masala was so sweet that it was almost inedibl. No depth of flavour, no fresh coriander. The Paneer Jalfrezi was marginally...More

I have eaten food from this establishment for as long as I can remember and can't fault the staff or food. The portions are sizeable, the flavours are perfect and the staff bend over backwards to accommodate. I couldn't recommend this place enough and make...More
