Really really good curry. Delivered fast fresh and hot, cannot fault it. And that's from a curry lover! Ignore the lesser reviews and trust me, for delivery it's great...

Ordered on the Star of Bengal app. When we phone to see why 90 minutes after delivery time it hadn't 't arrived - they hadn't seen our order. Another 40 minutes later it arrived. No popadoms. Poor service on Christmas Even.
