Have been here numerous times (not just after a few beers) and every time the food is delicious and the service is top notch! Nothing is a problem. The food is always fresh. Best curry house in Cardiff!

Went for a family meal. Service excellent (as always). All the starts and mains were piping hot and very tasty. A very good selection of starters and mains, including the veggie options (which were most welcoming). A very relaxing atmosphere and reasonably priced. Highly recommend.
