Great authentic Indian fair at great low price. They cook it, you eat it and there is no menu. Just enjoy and don’t ask to many questions. It’s on a back alley so you’re definitely going to need your Google map.

Had heard about this place a number of times, eventually found it tucked away down an alley in northern quarter. Varied menu, changes every day, fast, friendly service. Delicious and great value for money.
