Served great food with a huge choice of vegetarian meals. The waiters weren't very friendly and we didn't feel welcome. However, the food more than made up for this.

Decided to get a takeaway from here, based on all the positive reviews. I wasn't disappointed, very tasty food, decent portions, and friendly, smiling staff. Good value for money, I would recommend without hesitation.

Visited with friends who recommended. A chatty, friendly waiter helpfully made recommendations for us. I had a wonderful fish curry. Different tastes with every mouthful from fragrant to hot. Will be back!

Thanks for your reviewing and we do apologies for any inconvenience but we are bit confused did you order from us or somewhere else because we don't do any green Harvey curry. And vegetables are row Indian restaurant which is bit confusing me. Please contact with us we will make you happy. Thank you
