My in-laws ordered from here to be delivered while I was over visiting. As an American, I know the curry we get isn't nearly as good as that in England, so my judgement may be off, but all of my British in-laws liked it too!

I am disappointed with this place, last year the food was great but has got worse over last year. Still nice but not great as it was in the past. Nice staff which is a shame.

The food here was very nice and the staff was very friendly. Also reasonably priced but unfortunately I got food poisoning from here leaving me throwing up all the time. Really unfortunate. I was the only one that ate the chicken so I was the only one who was ill from this
