Came here on a Saturday night with my friends for a birthday meal, as always the food was unbelievably tasty, would definitely recommended the moducash murgh, they have a very nice selection to choose from too. The food was served in a reasonable time considering the restaurant was very busy. Definitely be back very soon.

Had to ask for plates for 2 of our party. Had to ask if we could order. Had to ask how long the starter was going... More

Even though this was our first visit they made you feel like it was your local restaurant. The food was excellent and service was prompt even though they were... More
