Despite our initial shock at it's appearance this place serves up some fantastic food. Rice and three curries for a good price. The onion bhajis were a highlight. So if you're after a hearty quick curry this is the place. Only downside is the toilet facilities could do with some attention.

I've be going here for a few years now. It's not an up-market place but despite that it's a great place for fresh well made dishes which are fairly priced. If possible try and miss the lunchtime rush.

Ten years or more and still excellent. They may have had a makeover that will upset the purists, but the food is a fab as ever. The lamb and carrot is still my favourite of their rice and three choices. My other two were the chicken and the spinach, also excellent. Still the best value rice and 3 you can... More

No frills, cracking good food, cracking prices And you won't be hungry at the end either. Normally I am not too keen on Indian food however this is a hidden gem.

Wasn't sure what to expect when I walked in here but the food was really good & tasty. Lamb + Spinach + Veg was a great combo and incredibly cheap. I wish this place was open longer hours!

Don't be put off by the venue's location, we've tried the rice and three veggie curries and it was great, just like the garlic naan. We paid less than £5 for all that. Besides, people were nice and welcoming so it's definitely worth a visit!
