The food in here is really good - very tasty and well cooked. The service is also excellent - welcoming, friendly and attentive without being in your face. The only thing stopping me giving it a 5* is the decor - although the food itself...More

Great quality Indian, friendly staff and reasonable prices. Small restaurant but that means normally a good atmosphere. Highly recommended.
