Putting everything else to one side I simply didn’t enjoy the food. We eat Indian quite regularly and I just didn’t rate this.

Busy place serving a limited but varied menu. Overall average. Food tasty. Portions fairly small so you have to order a few. Prices average. A place of fairly quick turnover of customers

This place is superb & very popular. The night we visited, there was a musical taking place at the Kings theatre which is just across the road. I’m guessing that there were lots of people in for a pre-theatre meal as it was very busy...More
