Fabulous meal and very tasty. I went for something different, Shakils Goa Puri, a stuffed spiced chicken pepper and deep fried chapati. Not too heavy and no need for rice. Excellent service, very helpful staff and nice decor with sympathetic lighting. Thoroughly recommended.m

This is by far the best restaurant and takeaway of Indian food in the area and surrounding areas. It gets very busy at weekends so booking is best but well worth a visit. They even have entertainment acts in the months leading up to Christmas,...More
