Restaurant presents well and you don’t feel squeezed in at all which is a good change. Food was tasty and service was good. Bathrooms were yuk. We felt we got taken for a ride with banquet pricing so think carefully depending on group size.

Once again a great dinner, my wife had her usual Butter Chicken with garlic naan bread and I had the lamb breyani with extra chillies as I like it a little hot. Friendly staff and value for money.

Indian Star is by far the best Indian in the area and probably in the west. We have been eating here for over 20years. Great takeaway too.
