Best Indian in the area. Takeaway and sit in. Food is always delicous and the staff are courteous and attentive. Spotted the chef and he was immaculate, always a good sign. Place is nicely decorated and plenty options for our vegetarian daughter.

Great service from the moment we walked in. They made us welcome, made us laugh and made it a proper experience. The food was excellent. Naan bread to go with it it was the best I've had.

One of the best Indian meals ever. It is not cheap but if a few people then you can share. Service can be slow when busy but is worth waiting for. They have just started serving alcohol again but it is quite expensive.
