Nice to see this place so busy again when we popped in there this afternoon. 3 staff serving and all busy. Most seemed to be locals asking for bespoke curry mixes. :)

The pungent smell of freshly prepared spices hits you as you enter this shop. Mouth watering specialities are under a glass counter as you enter to the right. Jars to the left. Stock up on unusual items whilst you can.

I cannot commend the staff here strongly enough. They were thoroughly helpful, advising me on my curry choices and side-dishes and checking on quantities....kitted me out with a curry feast which drew compliments from our dinner guests. Won't cook curry any other way now!
