“Good overall”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

We tried their takeaway after getting some GrabOne vouchers. We tried 3 different curries with Nans, popadoms, and rice, and all 3 tasted excellent, were of the appropriate spiciness, and plenty hot. The popadoms however, were dreadful. Just the same as store bought & grilled - not even fried
The major downside was the small amount of meat in each curry. If the cost was being kept down because we used discount vouchers, then the whole point of them was missed. We won't be back, as there are better to be had in the area. If there had been a little more meat , then we would have been back at least once a week.
