Quick and convenient but the food is just a bit too average. That said, it is cheap and fair for the price. Can't see me coming back in a hurry as there's so much other choice in the area

And it was a Saturday night. It's probably because they don't serve alcohol there, but that suited me being alone. Other than that, it's a cheap and cheerful Indian vegetarian restaurant, with a help yourself buffet that filling. There's probably too much stodge on offer...More

This was the worst food ever. Dry rice, bland mush that was supposed to be food. And the snacks could pass for cardboard. It is cheap, and still too expensive.

This is a cheap meal and you can have seconds so it's very good value. The food is ok, not great but perfectly adequate and I've eaten here 3 times at least so it can't be that average or I'd never come back.

its easy to say that a warm/hot meal for 5.99 is not bad a price for brighton, but unfortunately this time it was not. The waiter slumped across to me as uf he wanted to be somewhere else and looked bored out of his mind....More
