Proper traditional Indian restaurant with a great atmosphere geared up for noisy and lively groups right in the middle of Britains party city. It serves good quality hot spicy food quickly and efficiently throughout the day. Bad mark goes against them for serving instant coffee.

Been going here regularly, even frequently, for decades. Food unfailingly excellent. The "meal deal" is terrific value, wide choice, drink, includes poppadoms, pickles, starters, mains, choice of rice, completed by ice cream or tea or coffee or Indian dessert for just £12.95! Ample portions. A...More
