The meal was excellent and well presented by a friendly helpful waiter. The owner called a Cab for us after we had eaten and we were given a complimentary coffee while we awaited it's arrival. A really enjoyable evening.

The online takeaway is really quite good, the choice plenty and easy to use. The food was available on the time requested and hot, so no complaints. For middle of the road indian cuisine at a reasonable price this is worth a try.

Generally good service even when the restaurant got busy. Very good food which was foodie Indian, that is flavours and spices from India but fashionable presentation. Reasonable value for money
