Ordered a chicken curry and a dosa, both were really nice and just the right amount of spicy. Waiter was attentive and food arrived promptly. Also very reasonably priced.

Wow! Delicious and value for money. Delivery within 30minutes. Food was so good and very generous servings. We could have made a meal out of the appetiser mixed platter for two. The naan bread was the best I’ve had and I loved the hotness options.

Great vegetarian range. Overall the menu has a bit extra from the far-too-standardised sanitised "Indian" food, although it has all the standards there if you want them.
