The food was awesome. Can't believe I've not been here before. We shared a starters and mains platter between 5 of us, it was perfect.

Really recommend eating here, the food is excellent and reasonably priced. Staff attentive, very busy early in the evening on a Thursday, and it's obvious why.

Amazed by the food served here! I was expecting it to be typical spicy Bengali style food, but it was amazing authentic Indian food especially the chicken 65. Worth the price and service was amazing too.

There are quite a few car parks within a 100 or so yards. If you are lucky you can get parked outside but you would need to be incredibly lucky! As It is in the town centre. It is well worth a visit though.
