“Used to be ok - now BAD. Avoid.”
Reviewed 29 December 2012

Been taken over and done up inside, food gone downhill badly. Is very oily and just generally bad. Just sauces spooned over meat, very much like the kismet. If that's your bag, tuck in, just make sure the hygiene rating has gone up.

“Hit and Miss”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

We'd occasionally order from here, as it's down the road so we could walk to pick it up.

It always looks empty, but couldnt comment on the restaurant as we only use their takeaway facility. It is difficult to communicate your order and often we'd find our order incomplete or incorrect.

Apart from that, once the food had arrived, there was plenty of it, and they occasionally chuck in freebies (Poppadums or Naans).

Mmm Maybe not on my 'hotlist; but I'd use them again if push comes to shove.
