We tried this restaurant and found it to be quite good. The service was very good. Decent sized serve of Raita. Pumpkin Masala and Tandoori Chicken were both very good.

A well priced menu served by friendly staff. Whilst small servings were certainly filling and dishes were very appealing leaving you wanting more. Will certainly return.
