What a joy. The food was flavoursome without the indiscriminate heat you get in other Indian Restaurants. Service was very friendly and helpful. And they do a discount for Caravan Club Members as well! Just lovely.

Mains were £7. Excellent value for money, delicious tender chicken madras and lamb vindaloo. The Bordeaux Saint Emilion Grand Cru was just £20- great value If you order papadams, the sides are included. Excellent attentive service. Manik's is definitely the man!
