As a group of retired firefighters we meet every 2 or 3 months and start with a meal in Cafe India. We get greeted and recognised as returnees and made very welcome. Meals are superb, chkn bhuna lamb saag etc some of our favourites. Cant wait till we meet again. Great staff great service and great food.

Had an absolutely delicious, fresh lunch which was very obviously cooked to order. Each dish was different with a distinct flavour. Reasonable prices and the service was excellent. We had a look at the new, forthcoming menu and are looking forward to returning to try it.
