Happy with the butter chicken and beef vindaloo. Was strange that it was put in the same bowl but worked out pretty tasty none the less. Huge serving size and reasonable pricing. Great service and food was fresh!! Overall happy camper

Had lunch with a friend, it was quickly served from the hot food server. Was satisfactory but wouldn't get excited about returning. There was a steady stream of people coming in so probably got a good take away following.

Excellent food, carefully prepared and full of flavour. The sort of quality that restaurants wish they could serve. Makes a take-away better than eating out, without the price.

An underrated gem! A regular spot my daughter and I go when seeking Indian. I don't think I have ever had a better chicken korma in my life! Butter chicken also exquisite. The dishes are authentic and to die for! Really great if you want...More
