A buffet style menu with a good range of dishes. A range of starters and salad. Curries, some with just urdu names but you could always ask.

This Indian buffet needs a refurb but serves a decent choice of dishes at a reasonable price. Car parking is handy.

Introducing Al Waalis, situated in the former palace nightclub. The food there was definite 1- star quality. It was oily, not particularly tasty and was dense which did lead to the feeling of bloatedness afterwards- and I wasn't even stuffing my face full I promise! Now, being somewhere that's inexpensive, you don't get a lot of variety which is to... More

I visited yesterday with some community and family friends where also community leader included and we enjoyed there. The foods are good except Manchurian Chicken. Compare to price is good and service is also OK.

First impression it was a bufffet and I was extremely hungry, so it'll have to do. This is one of the restaurants thats not been maintained properly, could be better but seems like... More

its good competitive, all restaurants have advantages and disadvantages. this restaurants disadvantag is that it requires a complete refurbishment. all seats are squeezed which leaves liitle move for moving around. food was good, service was also very good. the price is not competitive but fair.

They had some kinda function on downstairs so the parking was full but some joker was trying to park in a really tight spot after holding everyone up for 10 minutes they realised that its impossible then moved out. Had to park round the corner. We had a decent welcome in. Deco needs to be updated looks a bit worn... More
