My first visit on Thursday and will be back! We decided to order dishes we hadn't tried before and weren't disappointed. The Pav Bhaji was really good. The service was great and the staff were lovely.

Thali & pickles is our fave for a girls curry tonight. Great food and great service, especially from our favourite Mosaul who always looks after us! Would definitely recommend this place for a delicious and authentic curry.
