Worst indian ive ever had...aswell as that the place itself is dingy, dull and in major need of a facelift! Staff not very nice either..had to ask more than once for things and were unprofessional. Poor standard of food, could just about eat it.

Last went to this restaurant a good few years ago and it was very good. Under new ownership, it has lost it's alcohol licence, which was a bad start. I had a Lamb Jalfreezi, which was bland, plenty of chilli, but tasted like hot stewed...More
