The staff were so nice and helpful. The restaurant had Indian authentic decor. I had the lamb korma and it was the best lamb ever. The naan and rice was awesome as well. The best Indian in the world.

Visited whilst travelling from the UK. Honestly one of the best Indians I have had. We went back again a couple of nights later it was so good. Speedy and knowledgeable service. Catered amazingly for my partner who is vegan

We were looked after by Manu who advised us on our meal choices and she was spot on! Food was so fresh and non greasy and full of flavour. Naan breads to die for. Will definitely revisit next time we’re in the area.
