We treat ourselves to curry for our birthdays, the staff are always friendly, the food always delicious and hot and the complimentary papadoms for the drive home are a nice touch.

Brilliant butter chicken, chicken Korma, Mango chicken and Palak Paneer. "Banquet for two" is very good, especially the entree-appetiser selection. I love the garlic naan, not greasy at all.
