Wow. Lived in Ipswich for years and can’t believe I haven’t been here before. Very basic set up. No licence so bring your own. Curry is reasonably priced and fantastic. Authentic no frills food. Make sure you give it a go.

We go here quite often as we are always so impressed. The food is fantastic, staff are friendly and it's really well priced. Have eaten in and ordered take away and would highly recommend both! Excellent place.

Small restaurant with seating for 16-20. Excellent friendly service and varied menu, Food was top rate with plenty of flavour and served promptly. Restaurant is not licensed but you can take your own wine etc. Prices are reasonable with excellent special offers on some days.
