The pungent smell of freshly prepared spices hits you as you enter this shop. Mouth watering specialities are under a glass counter as you enter to the right. Jars to the left. Stock up on unusual items whilst you can.

I cannot commend the staff here strongly enough. They were thoroughly helpful, advising me on my curry choices and side-dishes and checking on quantities....kitted me out with a curry feast which drew compliments from our dinner guests. Won't cook curry any other way now!

The curry mixes might be good but don't expect any help from very rude ladies serving. I will not be going back for this reason. They need a lesson or two in customer service and learn to smile!More
