I’ve been here a few times and always nice food, I like my curry very hot and Raba always delivers just the right amount of heat, try the lamb jalfrezi ‘vindaloo hot’ with s pint of Cobra on draught

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!
