If you are looking for nothing but a positive review then look no further... Fantastic from start to finish - gorgeous food, great service from friendly and welcoming staff, great sized portions, reasonable price. Nothing bad to say about it at all and I can't recommend it enough! I can no longer go elsewhere as nothing compares!

We visited this restaurant with friends, I for the first time. Found the staff to be very friendly, especially the waiter who served us. The food was cooked to perfection and there was plenty of it. Will definitely be doing return visits.

Always find picking a curry restaurant out of my area difficult and nervously.
