A nice dinner for one, the restaurant is a nice place with friendly staff. The meal was tasty & enjoyable, there was nothing wrong with it, it just lacked a little something. On saying that, I ate it all & enjoyed it. Would I return - possibly not, I will try others first

Cooked on time, good menue choice, being an avid indian food lover and have had plenty up and down the country i found this to be good quality well cooked food. My vindaloo actually had a good array of fresh chilli's instead of just being covered in chilli powder, onion bhaji's could... More

We went here at the start of the month for a family meal. The menu was small! But they were more than happy to make me what I wanted for my main. For the started we had a sharing bread. Which was really nice. The staff were really friendly and chatty and made it lovely

Stopped using this restaurant some years ago when the service and food were very poor but thought i would try it again last night with some friends. What a great surprise it has a new menu quite small but exceptionally cooked. If your like me and haven't been here for a while, give it a go you won't be disappointed.

In town briefly, needed a location for a meal for one. Met by very friendly staff. Very well presented internally. The service was quick and the food freshly cooked and one of the best curries I've had. Thoroughly recommend the home made dip with a lime theme. Well done guys, look forward to being down there again.

The mint yogurt is the best in the bay by far and believe me i've tried them. Home made 21 different ingredients. Puts those using only mint and yogurt with loads of sugar to shame. see you very soon rehan More
