This restaurant was a quick walk from Jucy sleeper place. Just follow the smells of deliciousness. Quick, efficient and friendly service. We over filled our bellies and had enough for a take-away for our flight the next morning. Affordable. Smiles all around for this place

I was here a few weeks ago and it was excellent! I had the Chicken Tikka Masala and I can't say enough about it! The Naan is also terrific!

The food was ok but not special at all. The portions are rather small and tasteless. For a quick bite still recommendable.

Called in recently after collecting the Youth from the bus. Decided we'd see what the spitfire square complex had to offer. The place was busy, but they accommodated our table of three. Butter chicken and mango chicken were ordered with associated breads. Mango chicken, while it had some flavour, lacked the flavour of our local restaurant. The butter chicken had... More

The staff are lovely and the decor is creative. There is a variety of dishes and they were all tasty and reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

Very disappointed, bland slop. I love Indian food and have tried many restaurants, this must rate as one of the worse will never go again.
