Would recommend all day long, the flavours from these meals are outstanding. Well Done Guys. Although a little pricey still worth every penny. If you like your Indian food you will not be disappointed. Also a great selection of wine.

I would recommend booking as the place gets pretty busy. Nonetheless on one occasion I have seen them cater for walk-ins. I guess it’s on the night. But book to avoid disappointment
