This is traditional Indian cuisine at its best. Big menu, great Indian tapas, fab food all round. Lots of Indian people eat here, that says it all really. Have visited many times and never been disappointed.

One of my favourites with some stunning starters in chilli paneer, gobi manchurian and casava chilli. Decent main portions - usual fare. Charging £1 per poppadam is excessive. Parking is as always terrible. Onky thing tgat puts me off going here.

There are quite a few car parks within a 100 or so yards. If you are lucky you can get parked outside but you would need to be incredibly lucky! As It is in the town centre. It is well worth a visit though.
