I have been going to this place for thirty years since it was a place where even a knife and fork were optional extras. You were expected to use chapatis to eat your food. It was genuine and great.
I suspect that good as it was it would have been shut down by now unless it at least came into the 20th C. The thing was that then it had an identity, it was never a three pot curry house but provided authentic, cooked to order delicious spicy food with no frills. You could go across the road for jugs of beer and relax and enjoy. The food is still good but it has lost the notion of who it is. It tried to posh itself up but somehow now falls between two stools. They still know how to cook. They still offer good value for money but shouldn't try to go upmarket. The bones of a great unique curry house are still there but if they go any further into trying to be what they are not they may get lost in the muddle.
