I wasn't very impressed by my takeaway, having ordered the lamb korma, dhal, and malai kofta with naan bread. There was little meat in the korma and the sauce was vapid. The dhal was similarly watery with little punch. The kofta were flavourless stodge. I...More

Great place for take away but you can eat in too. Don't expect too much though. We liked it, it's actually not expensive and the special offers have a very good price! Staff was kind of funny, was nice!

Absolutely grand for a quick takeaway in the city. Very fresh and the staff are nice. Don't be put off by decor but do remember its a takeaway and not your fine-dining experience. Really good naan.
