Enjoyed a lovely meal here. Had the special duck curry it was truly delicious. We ordered a parotta which wasn't on the menu and the chef made it perfectly. Staff always friendly and there's a relaxed vibe to the place.

Sunday offers a fixed price 'banquet' of starter, main and accompaniment, with most of the menu being available other than king prawn dishes and tandoori mix starter.... More
