This place never fails, we come here as a couple and as a family group. The food is always proper tasty, hot and comes out quick even when busy. The staff and the owner ( I think ) are brilliant.

A fairly regular takeaway for us. Always pretty good. The prawn toast is very good. Decent value and pretty quick service.

We had a Business Lunch - we all had ribs to start which were good but we also had chicken curry which as just reconstituted - very uninspiring. Wine was really expensive though and not particularly good. Wouldn't go back.
