Second visit here. Last one in 2016. Another great meal. Good service. Friendly staff. Certainly a cut above your usual curry house. Excellent menu. Always seems full....a good sign, I'd say. Certainly one of the best Indian restaurants I've eaten in.

I visited here with my partner and we both enjoyed our meal. The table was quite small though which made things a little tricky when we had all our food served.

Dined there last night; great food. Although quite cramped having said that we hadn't booked ahead. Would definitely go back. Not cheap but worth it.
