Having visited on many occasions under previous ownership we thought we'd give it a try tonight having heard it was under new owners.. wish we hadn't bothered. Food was average but service was terrible - waitress with no understanding of what was on menu. Told no meat samosas so ordered something else only for another staff member to come out... More

We tried this place for a take away on a recommendation from when it was under the previous owners.....we were also unaware of the recent poor reviews... If I were honest the worst thing was the huge amount of grease on everything. The popadoms were covered in oil that tasted very old. The chutney and some other 'yellow' sauce were... More

Best Indian food I had in a long long time. The food was fresh and tasty. Good portion sizes and reasonable prices. I'd definitely come back!

We live in Highcliffe but rarely eat out locally; however, we agreed to attend the local Indian restaurant and how surprised we were. The restaurant had recently be renovated which really gave it a boost of life. The food was delicious (not greasy! Which is sometimes the fault with Indian food). We had some wine with our dinner which was... More

Our Saturday evening at the Elephant Walk, under its new ownership, consisted of a bottle of Merlot and 3 poppadoms! After over an hour with no sight of any food, we settled up and left. We even had to remind the waiting staff twice that no one had taken our food ordr. We managed to secue a 20p discount on... More

OMG my favourite curry house has been morphed into something unbelievably bad. This has now been taken over and the food is inedible. I had my favourite, but boring, korma dish and half the chicken was raw and the rest was overcooked - what's going on? I sent the food back and the rest of my table decided to leave,... More

Took my US visitors here having been told it was worth going. Not my idea of an Indian restaurant. However, very pleasant, comfortable surroundings, very good customer service and a reasonably menu. The manageress came to speak to us and was very pleasant and spent time with us. We ordered a very good meal - different portions and laying out... More

8 of us went for dinner, two of the chicken meals were completely undercooked. This is basic food hygiene. The service was slow, the beer was watery, there were not enough staff. Three other tables walked out. However the food we did have was was well spiced if not well cooked.

I can't stand Indian restaurants drowning everything in sauce. Tiny morsels of meat can be found swimming in the sea of sauce. Not going back.
