Probably due to the weather the restaurant was very busy plus they were doing takeouts, but the food was as good as always & we didn’t feel rushed at all. We had a lovely meal & will definitely be going again.
Really nice food and can’t wait for another sit in meal in the future. The staff were really friendly and very prompt with the service

Food was ok but I've had better Tended to over cook the fish dishes Salmon and the king prawn flavoursome but over cooked Tarka dhall a bit bland
The food was great and the Service was friendly and reasonably priced. It was a little noisy due to large parties. Would go again in a group.
