Had take away for 6. Ordered by phone and collected 20 minutes later, nice and hot. Free poppadoms included. Lovely meal, very tasty with loads of chicken. Sauce a little on the runny side with Naan breads. Friendly staff.

Real nice curry! Waiter was great. Recommend if you want lime pickle with your poppadoms to ask for it. We didn’t, and mentioned it at the end and the waiter kindly gave us some to take away. Will go here again if in area.
