Called order in and it arrived within 30mins. Piping hot, lovely bhajis, chicken jalfrezi, garlic rice and chips and a garlic naan. This has to be the best Indian takeaway I have had. Would definitely recommend and will be ordering again.

It had been so long since we had tried this takeaway. We are always prepared though to go back and have another look at what is on offer. My wife googled them and read they had won awards.

Ordered two Sunday night 5-course meals for family and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Vachan were very accommodating as we asked to replace a few of the side dishes for alternative equally priced items to suit our family's tastebuds.
