Summary

“Ten years of being at the top of the tree in Nottingham” – a curry strip Indian whose “excellent, authentic” and relatively light dishes (“best biryani ever”!) are “a little different to the usual” subcontinental offerings. Another major plus is that it’s “run by such a welcoming family”.

Summary

“The setting is not that appealing”, but that’s about the only caveat with this “warm” Indian “on Nottingham’s curry strip”. While “traditional” in style, its dishes are “cleaner-flavoured than the norm”, while “pleasant” and “personal” service also elevates it above the competition.
