    First visit certainly not the last

    Sadly due to the current covid situation my husband and I were the only ones in the restaurant the lunchtime we visited. It was a belated wedding anniversary meals to ourselves after yet another lockdown! The food was beautiful and tasty, just the right size portion, excellent table service and a very safe and clean environment. We will be heading back as soon as we are able to.

    Highly recommend!

    We booked the 20% off deal and it was well worth the money. The street food and curries are so flavourful and the portion sizes are fantastic. The staff are very attentive and there's plenty of options to choose from. I hope the restaurant survives the lockdown as I'd recommend it to anyone and I'll go back.
