This is an Indian restaurant that I regard as the best in Essex as they serve the most amazing Punjabi cuisine. Therefore you will understand my massive delight when I heard they were going to reopen (due to popular demand) for takeaway and delivery on a Friday & Saturday evening from 4.30pm to 9.30pm. This …

I’ve only had the pleasure of eating at this Turkish restaurant once and even then that was a last minute decision for a quick lunch. But even during that short experience i absolutely loved the food and the staff were very friendly so you could see why some of my friends had said I should …
