We have always enjoyed the food here. This last visit was a huge disappointment. We sat in the pub area and was 15 min before we could get service. Food took long. The Mutton breyanis was more like pilaau. Just bones and rice. The Mutton...More

Had the mutton bunny. Service was fast and friendly. The potion size was great. My wife had the chicken bunny and that tasted the best.

Our group descended upon the Brittania Hotel and the Capsicum venue for our monthly bunny chow outing .... and there were no disappointments. The boneless mutton bunny chow could not be faulted for presentation, taste and tenderness of meat and potatoes, gravy too was right...More

This is a great curry place and it doesn’t get more traditional than that. Dishes are varied and delicious but the House specialty, which you should try, is the Bunny Chow... a piece of bread stuffed with curry (look up its history as it’s interesting)....More
