Love the food in this place. The staff is very helpful also and nothing is too much trouble. Does Indian and Italian but I always get the Indian dishes as they are so tasty.

I love this restaurant. I have never had a bad meal here. The recently added Monkfish to the menu is to die for. Superb! The staff are so friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Food was superb and good value - meals came with choice... More

I have been travelling to Derry for a number of years for work. I am always dubious about having Asian food whilst on my travels as I have been spoiled because I grew up in Bradford, the Curry Capital of the UK.
