This is a smallish restaurant run by a family from the Punjab in NW India. We ordered vegetable korma, mutter panir, coconut rice and a naan. Having visited the Punjab I was delighted to find a meal that was as good as Punjabi home cooking....More

Decided to try takeaway from here having heard good reports for years. I tried one dish only on this occasion, a goat curry, and I wasn’t disappointed. The flavours were deep and rich. I’ll try more dishes from here.

Just just fancied a tasty feed. Well this was the place. Really good meals. Shared an entree, then one veggie dish and one chicken. Both were great, the paratha and naan were really good. Great staff, sensible prices, all round recommendation.
