Take 5 Café

Take 5 Café is a Bristol classic. Run since 1996, here you can get an amazing plate of curry, such as saag paneer to tikka masala, with rice and chutney for only £5 every day. They also serve a full English on the weekend for the same price. You can also rent the café for a meeting, a party or any other social event. This place is a real gem.
