Beautiful food (chicken was so tender and juicy), prawns perfect and lovely warm atmosphere. Our young waitress (Lillia) was very friendly and attentive.

Busy restaurant. great for a group get together. Delicious Indian food. Very reasonable prices. I had the Dhingri Prawns and it was one of the best Indian meals I have ever eaten.

Thank you for accommodating a large group, the food was as usual tasty and the service was very efficient, our waiter did a great job looking after a noisy bunch of friends.

I have been eating here for years with my family and it’s always a wonderful experience whether dining in or getting a takeaway meal. Having gone vegan in the past year I was worried that I might have to miss out on dining here, however...More
