The buffet was brilliant with different levels of spice and heat to suit all tastes - including my 10 year old grandson! The pappadums and nan were fresh and delicious. Don't miss them! The owner manager was on hand when we were... More

We just had popadoms to start and then each of us ordered a main meal and the 8 meals we received were so tasty and cooked to perfection. The staff can't be any more friendly and Ali is very accommodating The whole experience was... More

Opted for their Sunday buffet for two and the first thing I noticed was that it was very small offering salad, pilau rice, onion bhagi, chicken pakora, vegetable, lamb and chicken curries. The waiter then took an order for naan bread. When the bread arrived it tasted as if it had been dipped in disinfectant and was inedible. All the... More

The hot food just kept coming so there was never food sitting in the hot plate drying out. There was mild to hot,... More
