We moved to Chichester last December, and after a dreadful meal at another Indian restaurant here have avoided them since. However, there are some nights when only a curry will do, and after reading in the Old Cottage reviews that they do a tandoori lamb...More

First came here about 20 years ago. Googled online and found a website. Booked a table via the website. The only menu on the website was for take away but I looked at the prices and they seemed very reasonable. I did not hear back...More

Me and my partner came for dinner on a random night out and ended up here. Such a lovely place to eat, amazing service I couldn't have asked for anything better. Would highly recommend and will be coming back!
