We recently had supper at the restaurant, even though the place was full we had great service. The prawns masala was excellent. Deboned chicken tikka masala was also a hit!!!

With a warm traditional setting, and an all-inclusive menu, this is a truly charming restaurant. The staff are very attentive and friendly and will answer any questions you may have about the menu. Definately recommend.
