Went in for a meal here, really delicious. The chicken dhansak is a hit with my hubby, I loved the lamb rogan josh. Waitress and waiters really polite, pleasant and helpful. Will definitely be back and would recommend a visit!

We did not book ahead, & as we are vegan, we expected a problem or two. However, once the manager (owner?) understood what our needs were, he was most accommodating. The restaurant was fairly busy, mostly with locals. The food was good, without being inspired,...More
