My wife, daughter and i had a lovely meal. The place was clean and comfortable, the staff helpful and friendly. The food was very good, tasty and well presented. There was a varied selection of drinks alcoholic and non and overall good value for money.

Himalayan curry is to die for! So delicious and always served by friendly staff and excellent customer service. Free delivery in Lerwick for orders over £30 (great for hungover Sundays) and often get a free bottle of wine thrown in to large takeaway orders. Delicious...More
