Went for a meal with hubby & son. Food was fantastic. We were there just after they opened for the night, so it was quiet. Bari came out from the kitchen & was very friendly, advising us on what to have. The lady who was waiting on was also friendly & helpful.

This is a family run restaurant with an excellent menu full,of an interesting variety of meats used in their curry sauces. Very friendly and helpful when choosing your quantities e.g. Number of rices and naan bread etc. Nice atmosphere not room too big.

Excellent selection of tasty food with great service. The manager is great fun too, taking time to advise on the perfect combinations to make the dining experience more pleasurable. He is also willing to make a dish to a diner's personal preference, and did so on our recent visit.

The food in this restaurant really is to die for. We were a party of 7, and every one of us said it was the best Indian food they'd ever had. The owner is the chef, and he is really passionate about food and making sure his diners enjoy themselves. Prices reasonable, service excellent. Can't wait to go again.
