I love the Aftab, the food is amazing! Also very very tasty! The staff are so friendly and welcoming! The cheese naan is fantastic and the poppadom condiments are the best I've ever tasted! Couldn't recommend this place enough!

Yes, friendly staff which always makes a difference when you visit a restaurant but the food was slightly better than average, the korma was ok, pappodums ok though the peshwari nan was too doughy and hardly any coconut in it. It's ok, appreciations to the staff for making an effort.

We have always enjoyed going to the restaurant but from last year and the preceding year the food was not up to its usual standard. Perhaps a change in chef? We have returned... More
