Having visited this restaurant many times in the past, after a break of two years or so we decided it would be nice to go back. We were greeted by a lady in traditional dress who was friendly and showed us to our table in what we believe to be an old barn, beautifully converted. Unusually it wasn't as busy... More

On arrival we were told by the waiter in charge that he could not attend to us as he was on his own and very busy. After answering the phone for take-away orders... More

Amazing setting... Shame about the food & attitude of the female owner!! Ordered a King Prawn Madras... Arrived in a cereal bowl, all other meals served in a skillet. Usually that means whole prawns on this occasion chopped up but not actually prawns, tough & chewy, not only that the sauce was not madras, some thick tasteless gravy glup, politely... More
