Go here all the time. The staff are incredible, can't do enough to help. So friendly and polite but give you space and time to eat your meal and not feel rushed. Every meal I've had has been excellent. Strongly recommend the jalfrezi!

In need of a curry fix while staying in York, I decided to try this long-established, seemingly popular Indian restaurant just outside the town centre. Though the food was prepared from good ingredients, it seriously lacked the depth and complexity of flavours I expect from...More
