A great fusion restaurant serving a tasty combination of Indian and Chinese cuisines. They also have a cocktail bar, so you can have a drink or two before and after your meal.

Proper Indian food...truly authentic, bountiful and such amazing value! I defy anyone to actually get to the mains, when you can't help but order so many starters!

A really good Greek restaurant and events venue that does Greek dancing, belly dancing and plate smashing - amongst other things! It's a great place to go for a hen do or a birthday party.
