I don't like Indian food (or so I thought) but came here for a work celebration. Staff helped me choose a dish that wasn't at all spicy that I could eat. Large servings and very friendly staff.

Food was fantastic, a great alternative to traditional Indian. If your looking for chicken Korma this isn't the place for you. Exciting dishes and very welcoming staff. Recommend booking a table as this place gets very busy. Would return in a flash.
