Probably our favorite restaurant, keep coming back and every time leave happy. Food is delicious, atmosphere is lovely, staff and service are great. If you aren’t into hot food, try the chicken korma, Delicious mild option.

We went with a friend of ours who hadn't been back for three years due to the terrible service and attitude. Our meal was amazing but sadly the attitude of our waiter and his 'couldn't care' way, made it so unpleasant. Highly recommend the butter...More

Busy Indian restaurant. Wide choice of dishes, good selection of vegetarian options. Some strange desserts for an Indian restaurant such as Mississippi mud pie.
