We must have used the words 'best curry ever' at least 5 times each on our latest visit. We've tried the Fish Goan Curry, Nihal's Laz Murgh and the Butta Methi Palak; all great. Super friendly staff too, especially Ibrahim.

I came here because I read great things about the butter chicken. I ordered that with naan bread. Ok, it's ok but nothing to rave about! Pretty cheapish, I guess but I wouldn't visit again.
