visited earlier in the evening to avoid the busy evenings and it was well worth it as it wasn't noisy or crowed and the food was just as good as last time and faster service. We all had different curries which were lovely especially the Chicken Tikka Bhuna. There were three of us eating and we decided to skip starters... More
