First experience with this restaurant on a recommendation from friends. We didn't actually go in but ordered over the phone for home delivery in a village outside Stamford. All still piping hot and tasty. Thank you ever so much.

Regular visitors here. It’s always busy, a sign of both its popularity and its longevity. Habib and the staff work tirelessly and are always looking to improve rather than just make changes for the sake of it. If there’s something you fancy, just tell them...More
