Great food, friendly but inattentive and slow staff. Large open restaurant good for big groups. Will get take away next time.

The service is great and food is excellent. One must try the Achari Chichen in starters and Butter chicken Indian style for mains. Absolute value for money! Keep up the good work guys.
