Nice food, decent price,awful service. Asked for the sauces to be topped up for main meal, offered the money extra. 15 mins later we reminded about the sauce and they just brought the one back. Left waiting for a while until we could take our order.

Food is superb. Faultless curry and gorgeous taste. No improvement needed! I've been in the restaurant before and the staff are very friendly and service very good.

Lamb rogan, plain nan, king prawn mix veg bouhna balti and a king prawn butterfly starter. All delivered within 35 mins to our door. Eating it on the table and it was like it had just been made that minute. This place knocks the socks off other places locally and we're proud to remain a long standing customer supporting this...

Keep eating here and their king prawn mixed veg bhuna balti is probably the best on planet earth. If we were rich and thin we would eat here every night.
