Last review I gave for this place was 1 star. Not for the food which has always been good but for the poor service. (Quoted an hour for delivery, food finally arrived after two hours) However, recently we have been quoted accurate wait times. Long...More

We have had meals from here many times and think it's probably the best take-away in Bolton. There is a good choice on the menu and the food is tasty. Ring ahead and order your meal - it can get very busy at weekends!
