We ordered chicken curry, it was a slimy mess. Sweet & sour chicken, we could taste corn flour. To be fair, this is not the first time. We needed a quick meal after a 4 hour journey.

Have tried this place a couple of times before and not greatly impressed. However, gave it another chance this evening and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and good value (4 adults and 2 teenagers for less than £40). Will use again.
