last minute decision to go out to eat. A real surprise was the REAL choice from a selection of vegetarian choice broader than just vegetables in different sauces

This is a well run and great value Indian Restaurant.Strangely enough,Mexican food can also be eaten here as the Restaurant also doubles as Rooster Pil Pil.Either option is a great bet.Plenty of flavours,Good portion sizes and friendly staff.Highly recommend this for either lunch or dinner options.Try the curries...you will not be disappointed.😊

I've been to this Indian restaurant a few times over the last few months and each time the food is outstanding... Amazing flavours... and an excellent range of dishes... This is Indian food the way it should taste... Full of authentic flavour. The customer service is also excellent, looking forward to my next visit already.

Never offered any drinks or water when handed the... More
