We got a takeaway from here the food was really REALLY greasy. Couldn't eat half of it because of this (rogan josh) this was our first visit and we won't be going back. There are much better ones around for the same price. Shame.

Tasty food and great friendly service for a meal for 4. The portions are a good size so beware and don't over order! The surroundings are clean and an effort has been made with the refurbishment but it is all very purple and crushed velvet.
