Had a takeaway during our short stay recently in Bowness and was not disappointed, the food was lovely and tasty. One of the best Indian takeaways we’ve had - defiantly worth a visit 😊.

Well this was our 5th and last time here. Previous 4 visits were great but they must be under new management. Portion sizes have shrunk considerably and we waited 1.5 hours for our meal. The rice portions and curry portions would not fill a child....More
