“Cheap, cheerful & a great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

We've eaten here a few times & never been disappointed. This place is really cheap, the staff are friendly and the food is great. In addition to curries (meat & veg & dahl) on a chilled counter that you can see & order there is also a big open grill area where meat & fish are cooked to order. This isn't a fancy restaurant or 1 where you'd linger all night & they don't serve alcohol but if you want to eat well in a no frills place for a really low cost, then this place is ideal.

“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2011

This is a very tradtional Pakistani restaurant with live tv from Pakistan. We are usually the only non-Pakistanis in there when we can get a table. It has an extremely authentic feel to it and defnitely not for the flock wall paper lovers. It is not atmospheric and there is no licence there but the quality is very authentic and the range of either curries, or kebabs is huge however, if you have never tried a taka a takk yet, include in your selection - nothing quite like it. It is rough and ready but clean and very friendly service. There are lots of things which I had no idea about, so we experimented and now it's my number one in the United Kingdom. It is amazingly cheap and represents fantastic value!
