Quality of the food belie's the first appearance. Very good selection of food choices. Highly recommend Ckicken Kebab in Peshwari Nann bread, it's to die for. Big enough to chick a horse to!!!

I had a delicious king prawn madras from here. Hot but not ridiculous. I had plenty of fliers through the door over the years but had not tried here before. Will definitely be back for more.

Don`t be put off by the interior of this take-away. The appearance seems to be the last thing they worry about. The food is consistently good, with plenty of flavour. Good varied menu with some different dishes to the normal ones on offer elsewhere.

Had a chicken tikka massala and a veggie kurma. Both appeared to be made with the same sauce - at least it tasted really similar. The massala sauce was really sweet rather than spicy. The vegetable curry only had carrots and peas in it - frozen vegetables with cubed carrots. Surely you could put a few more interested vegetables into... More

By a mile the best Indian takeaway in town. Not only are the curries the best but their pizzas are pretty good too. Madras is perfectly hot and spiced onion is the best I've tasted. Wide variety in menu.

Really disappointed to be writing this since I have used the Gurkha tandoori a few times and it had always been really tasty. Ordered a large chicken kebab and a large shish kebab both with salad, garlic sauce and in a naan bread. Got the chicken like we asked for but instead of a shish kebab (marinated lumps of lamb)...

The food is always to a high standard and at a reasonable price. Thai Red curry is a must if you like a medium/hot curry!

You always know what you're getting here. Decent quality, quickly prepared and reasonably priced. Great at tea-time or for the late night reveller market.
