Decent food but no atmosphere and they even charge £2 for mango chutney to go with your poppadom……bit of a cheek I feel.Expensive Indian but lack of alternatives so maybe try something else.

Came here for a meal with my husband. The food took a long time to arrive. Saw lots of customers collecting takeaways while we waited 45 minutes for our food. I think customers dining in should take priority. The food was fantastic- lots of king...More
