What a pity this restaurant is not open 7 days - they're closed on Mondays. The food is delicious, the staff are welcoming and friendly and you can tell they're smiling behind their masks.

The food here is so delicious - very fresh, authentic and generous portion size. The great reviews are all correct! We had takeaways of lamb on rice and the service was outstanding too - very efficient. We ordered a side of fries for our 5...year old too and they were also delicious. Will be back!More

This is our fave take out ever. Almost eat this weekly. 😘 Would like to see maybe re usable containers, because I’d totally buy one, feeling a little bad using the non recyclable ones so frequently.
