A friend who likes their Sunday Buffet took me to this restaurant and I was amazed by the quality of the food for the price. We just had the set lunch at £7.95. This included a choice of starter (we had the Chicken Chat which was filling and really delicious), then there was a choice of all the favourite curries... More

We had a King Prawn dish and Lamb Korai - the lamb korai was so tasty, the mixture of spices made it an inspired choice, I chose a vegetable curry and Naan bread rather than have... More

Restaurant very clean, service good. Surprisingly quiet lunchtime as £7.95 gets a starter, main, plus side and sweet or coffee. However it did seem that many other establishments were not busy on that day. Whilst a very limited choice of dishes, enjoyed all and will certainly return.

I was always a regular customer here, mr ahmed and his staff always made us feel welcome, the food was to an extremely high standard. If we popped into collect our meal we were always offered a drink, there was wonderful customer service. We moved out of the area and tried other restaurants which didn't match this restaurant. Last month... More
