The service was efficient but really awfully unfriendly. I did not see any of the waiters smile at any of the customers. The food was mediocre. There are lots of Indian /Asian restaurants around which are excellent so we won’t be back.

When we were there they had a special lunchtime menu as well as the al a carte. Best bet is to contact them directly
