We are indians so expected some authentic indian food. The curries have a lot of colour including daal. Naan is pretty thick. Service and location is very good. Ambience is good. Food is fresh too.

Lovely building and genuine staff. The food was fabulous, chunks of vegetables in the sauce/gravy made it that much better than anywhere else.
