Great and tasty food, nice service and quiet, pleasant setting. Good choice of food varying from mild to spicy. Kadai and Naan are definitely a place to go to.

The restaurant could be described as basic although the waiters/owner were attentive and friendly enough. The meal was lovely and fresh and the menu is much more interesting than your average Indian restaurant. Lots of great new flavours.

Nice little restaurant. Food was good, especially the really hot naga curries. It's what we went for. Kids enjoyed mild curries. Parking available on main road 6:30pm onwards.

Tasty food, plenty of choice and authentic cuisine. Don't go there for the ambiance as it is simple and not so busy because a lot of people order inn.
