I would definitely recommend this place! The food is great, the butter chicken is to die for, so yummy! Very busy as they are so popular, which makes a great atmosphere.

We enjoyed take-away here & it was great. The staff are friendly enough & it was very busy so that is usually a good sign. Our curries were fresh & tasty & the naan was perfect. If you're after some tasty Indian, get here ASAP.

Fantastic Indian meal - we had the venison curry (almost a rogan josh) and palak paneer. The mango lassi was also a highlight. Generous servings, but we didn't need a doggie bag because there were no leftovers!
