Absolute quality. I have dined in and had take out and every time it's brilliant. Great flavours, tender meat and the service when you dine in is top quality. My personal fav's are the Lamb Shoo Co Tee and Lamb Pathia.

Ordered takeout while staying nearby. Really great food, and friendly service when I was there to pick it up (inc free beer!) Look out for the balti, it's especially nice

The staff were really friendly and really kind to our kids (8 and 5). I was recommended the lamb shank and it was absolutely amazing, the best curry I have had in a long time. The duck starter was also amazing, mild but very tasty.
