Awesome delicious food, good choice of vegetarian options especially the Vegetable Korma which is so tasty. Very friendly staff, always welcoming. Can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough.

Called in on spec and was rewarded by a good reception from staff and a great menu. Decor / layout is basic but the food was very nice.

Another fantastic meal from a quite underrated restaurant. This time we had the set menu. £9.95 a head, all of us left stuffed with enough for my lunch tomorrow. Why did we leave it so long to try this place out?
