The staff as ever were great. The food tasteless , chicken tough and dry. Best part of the meal was the poppodoms Place was empty, gone are the days when you struggled to get in. I think a new chef is required!

We had a superb meal here. The curries were extremely tasty & the lamb in my husband's curry was really lean & tender. The staff were very friendly & the service was excellent.
