  • review rating 5  I can honestly say that this is THE best Indian Restaurant I have ever been to!!! The staff are wonderful, the place is clean and well looked after. My Wife didn’t know what to order and they concocted a dish that was perfect for her. The vegetable dishes were perfectly spiced , not over cooked and not smothered in tomatoes. Actually, really lovely ! Most of all though THE FOOD!!!!! The best Indian food we have ever had , and we eat out a lot! The rice is beyond belief.. absolutely beautiful.
