Authentic decent food. Naan not full of sugar. Food decent portions. Great tastes. Forget the positive reviews of other curry houses in the area- they write their own reviews. This one is genuine!!!

Although a small restaurant it is spread over 2 floors, with a clean and modern decor. Food was served efficiently without feeling you were being rushed. Toilets were very clean. Cost of meal for two was not expensive! Recommended.
