We have been here twice now and have had a lovely meal with friendly service. I had the chickpea curry and my husband had the Butter Chicken. Both were very nice. It was difficult to find at first but worth persevering!

Thanks Arash for welcoming us and serving us delicious meals. Try one of the eggplants pastes plus a somosa as starter and the house kebab or chicken tika masala for main. You wont be disappointed.
