Great little restaurant this superb food with a good selection of drink. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the food. The occasional appearance of the Indian elvis impersonator is definitely worth a go.

We went on a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was very quiet. Staff were very attentive and friendly. The food portions were huge and really tasty, good value! I have been to this restaurant a few times over the years, but after my visit last week I will definitely visit more frequently. Thoroughly enjoyed!!

Enjoyed a lovely meal here. Had the special duck curry it was truly delicious. We ordered a parotta which wasn't on the menu and the chef made it perfectly. Staff always friendly and there's a relaxed vibe to the place.
