Once again a great dinner, my wife had her usual Butter Chicken with garlic naan bread and I had the lamb breyani with extra chillies as I like it a little hot. Friendly staff and value for money.

Indian Star is by far the best Indian in the area and probably in the west. We have been eating here for over 20years. Great takeaway too.

I've been to this restaurant at least 6 times and will continue to return. Even when I've taken friends that have dietary requirements that mean changes to dishes need to be made, the staff and kitchen are more than happy to oblige.
