Took a long time to be served but also the rating of how hot the curry is needs to be reviewed as ordered what was rated a two chilli curry but came out very mild ...Disappointing

Not much sound absorption (hard floors and walls) so my elderly father found it hard to hear. I thought it was ok.

This is a pretty good restaurant. I recommend using mid-week since the weekends tend to see a differing level of quality of service based on the high volume of takeaways and eat in customers in comparison. It's very popular. I've noticed the amount of food per each dish has decreased over time (I first ate here in Nov 18) with the price remaining same/higher and overall the food is delicious.

Driven past this restaurant for years, then googled it and realised it was asian fusion. Decided to try and not disappointed. Food tasted very fresh, portions large. It was very busy as they had a tribute night. Would definitely revisit
