What a top level curry! My partner and i visited this whilst on a little get away,and i have to say it was a great find and will definitely be coming back when we are next in the area! The decor was great,the food was even better and the portion size will not leave you wanting! My partner had chicken tikka biriyani,and i had a dish which ive never had before called chicken num num and it was fantastic! The prices were very reasonable and the owner introduced himself to us and even took the time too ask our names and where we were from,which was nice little friendly touch! Cannot recommend this place enough. TOP DRAW!!

We had arranged a family meal , 10 people, all sat on a round table which was good. Very friendly staff and good choice of food.
Everyone enjoyed the meal and left nice and full.
A nice addition would be a low alcohol Ale, like Ghostship 0.5% for those of us that like beer but have to drive

First visit and very nice. Very fresh and clean food not greasy at all. Staff very nice had a good chat with two of them before we left 'Sam' very nice people, you dont normally get that at restaurants. Service couldn't be better. Staying in travel lodge over road 2 min drive. If we stay again we will be coming again. I had the naga which if you like hot this is hot but enjoyable. Very lovely restaurant
