What people say

Family run place by a very friendly couple... Dilruchi the lady of the house is always there to help you out. She cooks nice fresh food if you order. The place is very clean... nicely tucked away in a very quite neighbourhood. I shifted from a five star hotel to here and had no problem at all. Hey! You get what you pay for and here you get more than what you pay for. The staff are always smiling and the owners are great. Super value for money.
