A real diamond in the rough! Service was fantastic and the curries were outstanding. One of the best Indian Restaurants I've been to - and I have been to many! Couldn't fault it and I will be back!

Great food. Great service. When we arrived, we were the only ones in the shop. But there was a steady stream of takeaway customers. We had the Maharaja special, largely because I don't know how to order Indian food. And all of it was terrific!...More
