Haven't had an Indian takeaway for a long time and as it was absolutely lovely, I returned tonight and I have had the chicken Madras. The best I've had for a while for heat. Would well recommend to anybody thinking of dining for any reason.

Really attentive service, banter with staff and an extensive menu with knowledgeable staff who advised on menu choices. Lovely Rezalla and nice rich Tikka Masala, great rice options, Naan and Cobra on draught. Excellent meal.
