Visited on Tuesday for the £9.95 Banquet Special. Food and service first class and an absolute bargain for just less than a tenner. Surprised that it was so quiet.

Visiting the area and a little worried about getting a curry from some where other than our usual place in Wales. We need not have worried at all. This place knocked it out of the park. Great staff, great place inside, great food. Good selection...More
