    " The staff were very friendly and helpful, even the owner came over to speak.

    The food is very good and you can taste all the different spices, giving you a fuller flavour. They must have used little to no chillies, as we didn't notice any chilly/spicy after taste, which went down well with children,.

    Portions were slightly smaller then expected on starter, especially the ones that say share.

    Food arrived quickly, as we went early evening. I would suggest booking, as it was getting busier when we were leaving.

    One of my favourite places to go in Nottingham. "
