After quite a few years since our last visit, still not so good. Food is mediocre and ambience is poor. The staff are on the false side. The resteraunt has the feel of a village hall with tables and chairs. There are nicer Indian resteraunt southport there.

There appears to be two main rooms, on the left does the buffett, on the right (black chairs and fancy lights as in picture) does a la carte (i think). We should have asked (or better, been told). We wanted to try a few dishes so... More
