Walked in and a bit dated however was greeted and welcoming. Staff very friendly. Food is outstanding. Coming from Birmingham and having lots of curry houses to come to an island this was fabulous food. Chef is great. Would highly recommend. Reasonable priced too.

Had a take away lunch from here for 20. The order was spot on, food was hot and everything was delicious. Considering we all had different dishes this was no mean feat for them. Glad things are back on track, we missed our occasional curries.
