It's expensive as Indian takeaways go but the food was really really good!! Everything we ordered was delicious, korma, Nepalese chicken, shaslik, starter platters, onion bhajis. You have to pay cash but there's a cash point down the road. Would go again.

Staying locally on holiday - visited on a Tuesday evening and thoroughly enjoyed a fantastic meal. We had two children with us who were well looked after - we really couldn't fault the food and service - well done Red India !!.
