Really busy establishment with the mutton bunny certainly a favourite amongst patrons. I was disappointed with the mixed veg bunny and broad beans curry. I suspect veg food isn't their strong point. I'll stick with my local Indian outlets henceforth.

While the reputation is based on their bunny chow, the other curries are pretty decent. Specifically the prawn curry is tasty without being too strong and offers a decent helping of prawns. The lamb/mutton is not awesome....lamb tastes more like mutton.
