The food is usually hot and flavourful, this time the rice was hard with no flavour no salt and the oxtail was bland with no butter beans. Extremely disappointed.

I am really disappointed! I really wanted this place to be good! It doesn’t state anywhere on the Just Eat that the chicken curry comes with bone, when we received our order we quickly realised it was on the bone and the wrong rice, the chicken was also pink. When I rang to complain the lady I spoke to was extremely rude! I tried to explain that it doesn’t state on the menu that there curry has bones and that the portion of chicken to the rice was ridiculous. Shocking customer service
