Visited friends and after they were recommended this place, we ordered for a takeaway. I had the chicken biriyani, my husband had a prawn Bhuna, friends chicken tikka masala and chicken patia. They all had ZERO flavour, which is something you can rarely say about a dish with spices, it was very strange. I can’t put this down to personal preference as our entire party shared the same view. Popadoms were stale and no chutneys or salad were given, also not what you normally expect. A real shame as the reviews seem to be generally good, which was misleading for us. Would not recommend on that basis.

Serves a very palatable curry. My personal favourite is the Arati Special but I am not a great curry enthusiast. My friends who are all agree that here is the best. Friendly service

It was such a nice surprise!! Local and cosy restaurant with delicious tasty food!! Chickpeas were really nice and chicken tikka tender and juicy. We will definitely return to experience more of the menu and the friendly hospitality!
