It was busy and looked a much higher standard than other restaurants in the same road....and it was. I can understand why it is rated as the best curry house in Middlesbrough. Whilst waiting I had the popadoms and pickle tray which was lovely. I then started with the lamb chops....wow! they were hot. Firey but tasty! My King prawn... More

Busy restaurant, and has a large and interesting menu. The naan is large and served on a wooden stand. Tried Chicken Jalfrezi with rice and Masala fish, both were very tasty. Reasonable prices and good service
