This is an excellent curry house if you are vegan or vegetarian! Also catering for gluten free and other special dietary requirements this is because they cook everything from scratch! I am vegan and was amazed at their SEPARATE vegan menu! The people accompanying me did have meat dishes.. and I must say all meals were all outstanding! Plenty of... More

It is a little bit of a shame really as it is so local and has such a good location. Staff all OK, I felt the food was a little disappointing but OK nothing amazing. The problem really is that the place needs a really good clean and freshen up. This is a competitive market and for us this one... More

Great service and lovely food. We are vegetarian and found there was loads of choice on the menu and they were happy to adapt dishes to suit us. Little bit on the pricey side, but food felt fresh and well made. Super friendly staff. Agree with other comments that decor is tired, but felt that food and service made up... More
