“Fabulous curry !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

We went here because it was recommended on Trip Advisor and boy are the reviews spot on. We had great food. Plenty of choice and huge portions. At home in the UK the portions would have been half the size so sadly we over ordered and couldn't finish. Lovely waiting staff too. I couldn't recommend highly enough.
