Don't go here unless you want good indian food with great service, huge portions and wicked value. Good priced drinks to boot. The decor is a little tired but I suppose that comes from the wear and tear of being so busy.

My friends and I got butter chicken, lamb sagwala and tikka masala, all tasted fantastic. The garlic nann was awesome as well. I'm... More

I live in the north of England where we have some of the best curry houses in the world. I have a rule which is don't eat anywhere that doesn't do chapattis, I broke it here unfortunately. All of the dishes were described as having gravy, not sauce. I took this to be a local affectation but when the food... More
