The Rice and 3 curries is the best you can get. Has had a spruce up inside but still has the old charm. The service is kind and happy as usual. Food is tasty as ever. The extended times are convenient too . Keep going guys

To be honest when we saw this place we thought 'not going in' but we decided to try on account of recommendation. I'm glad we went it, the curry and accompaniments were really delicious, I would definitely return for a casual lunch.

You can buy different combos of rice with meat/veg curries in pretty much any variation. Or you could opt for a single curry and rice but there's not much... More

This was a popular lunchtime venue, not surprisingly as under a fiver for rice with three types of curry. The place was busy with all sorts of people including businessmen. It was quick service as it was ladled out. It was a hot, filling and very tasty lunch.
