All meals are hot, tasty and have authentic flavours. Very reasonable and quick friendly service. Can either dine in or takeaway.

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 some quick Indian on the go, the owners are lovely, always smiling and asking about... More

Met the owner. She was very friendly. Servings were generous. Authentic Curry. We liked the Vindaloo which was spicy. Butter chicken was too sweet for us. Overall a 9/10..

This is a good place to stop in for a quick easy lunch at a good price! Delicious curries. There is something for everyone from the spicy Vindaloo to a sweet Butter Chicken and vegetarian options. All very tasty. Very friendly service. Liza remembers your name if you are a regular.

Looking for a cheap and quick curry fix - this is the place. Great Lentil curry and butter chicken. Serves even with rice are often larger than some other take aways that charge so much more.

Food is fresh and tasty as always but the staff/owner wasn't as pleasant as expected, seemed more interested in talking to family members than serving loyal customers.
