I regularly visit this restaurant and I am a fan! The staff are always friendly and polite and the food is outstanding. Me and my friend usually order for starters poppadoms and chicken pakoras, chicken bhuna, chicken madras, onion pilau and garlic naan. Never had any reason to complain. I would definitely give this place a visit. You will not... More

Went to pick up a takeaway last night and was so disappointed with the quality of the food compared to previous visits. There was literally about 7 chips in the bag, had to leave all prawns as they weren't deveined, madras had no heat, tikka chicken was so dry and everything else had no taste...would never go back!!

As a group of very old friends, colleagues, workmates who get together on various occasions each month - to play very organised and enjoyable games of 11 and 5-a-side football - this was our postponed, traditional Christmas night out, which sadly had to be delayed until February.
