Had 2 very nice Korma's. A chicken and lamb korma was just what we needed after a day of rain stuck in the tent. A great place to get some very nice food

A business colleague and I ate here and thought the food and service absolutely outstanding. We dined on a Monday night which was quiet but thoroughly enjoyed every bit of this meal. Highly recommended.

The food was a poem, great taste, delicately spiced, appealingly served. Very nice service and a very good price-performance ratio. It makes you want more ... One would also like to try other dishes!

I regularly visit this restaurant and they never disappoint me because the food is very delicious. Specially their naan breads and Madras curries are fantastic. I will definitely recommend it to others.
