Get a bit away from the tourist crowded areas. It's definitely a place I'd recommend with great food and friendly staff!

Went on TA recommendation and was not let down! Although around 1km out of Burgau it is easy to find on your right off the main road with plenty of parking. Wide menu choice to suit all and relatively good prices. Service excellent

We have had 3 take away's from here in the last month. Great tasty curries and you can chose the 'heat' level on each dish. Big hit with all the family. Will definitely use again and again.

Just give them a ring and order by phone, or alternatively, go physically where you can wait at the bar until the food is ready.
