This and that is a good institution. The staff are also fantastic we have been eating here for a years and they never fail. Try the cabbage curry it's amazing or the Keema and peas and relax as the world goes around. Awesome and amazing

This & That is a great cafe for an easy going lunch. Food is great quality for the price. Good choices and good range of sides / sundries. Really recommend. (Soft drinks only)

This place will never let you down if you're looking for good old fashioned authentic Asian home style cooking. The 3 curry on rice is spot on. Kebabs are nice too. Not to pricey either

I come here pretty much every Tuesday for rice and three. Two meat, one veg curry with rice comes to £5.50. Basic surroundings but from the queues, you can always see how popular this place is with the lunch crowd. Cheap but extremely tasty food.

don't think so - have never seen a hound in there. They prefer Winalot to Keema.

They do. If you visit their website, the curries listed in green colour are vegan.
