Very nice food and service would definitely go back again
We ordered chicken briyani which was mushy and had very little chicken pieces. Highly suspect the briyani was reheated a few times. The poppadoms were stale. The mixed grill had raw onions at the bottom not caremelised like they should be. The fish curry was good but on the whole not worth the trip.
Good food, and very friendly service. We will recommend it.
