Dropped in with 3 families unannounced on Saturday night and they fitted us in no trouble. Bright red decor, great poppadoms, standard Indian fare. Couldn't fit anything more by the time we left!

We were looking for somewhere to eat but everywhere seemed full. As usual, trust in an Indian for space. Although the decor was very 70's the food was fantastic. The staff were very attentive and made sure that we were looked after.
