We were down in Petworth for a weekend away celebrating my partners birthday and this place was perfect for a cosy little meal. Love the underground cellar location! Food was also excellent.

Second time out, we have used Basmati, 3/4 main dishes. Always hot and very tasty. This is now our takeaway of choice. Slight inconsistency with the dal, but still very tasty. I would choose them over others and the food is always ready, hot and...More
