One of the mains we ordered was another... More

What a find, what looks like a back street cafe turned out I be a gem of a curry house. Best garlic chicken tikka ever. Lovely staff, relaxed atmosphere, exceptionally clean, reasonably priced food. Not to be missed on a trip to the Isle of Man.

Ate at this restaurant with colleague, staff were friendly but I thought the curry was decidedly average. The madras was quite oilly and I would say medium hot at best. Rice and peshawarny nan were very nice. Price was reasonable but the actual surroundings are more like a cafe than a restaurant.. chairs were pretty uncomfortable. There are some very... More
