I prefer this style of curry it is not as harsh as some others and you get the base ingredient coming through so all good the place is cosy with atmosphere and the staff are friendly and helpful

This is a very small restaurant and you are right next to the kitchen (just a counter dividing it from the tables). The two young girls who were waitresses need some training. The food was freshly cooked and piping hot but unfortunately lacked spicyness. They seem to do a lot of takeaways so obviously popular with the locals.

Excellent Indian food available in the centre of town. We were very surprised to happen upon this place thought it would be your usual tourist type place but it far exceeded expectations so we went back there number occasions.

We have been coming here for a while now. The staff always make a fuss over our children and make us feel very welcome. The food is delicious. Deep flavours and very fresh. Our favourite place to eat out by far.
