Ordered the following: Channa masala - chick peas were hard and not cooked thru, could tell they had just thrown a tin into a sauce; Butter chicken - was more like a chicken korma, very pale sauce without any buttery taste; Lamb Jalfrezi - Lamb...More

Did not visit. Had delivery which arrived somewhat late. Standard stuff not badly prepared but lacking finesse. However nothing left on plates! In summary cheapish and cheerful and will not rush to use again but by all means go in if standing outside.

We were hungry and just wanted a traditional Indian. Old decor, poor food and grumpy service. Spent less than 40minutes in the place. Not even sure if the chicken had over 50% meat on it. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.
