Although we have had the odd take away from here over the years, this was our first time using the resturant. It was a very last minute decision but we were made very welcome by the staff who remained very courteous throughout.

This was our regular take away, visiting the restaurant every 2 weeks for 10 years. We've now started to go elsewhere. Why? 1. complacent attitude of staff especially the owner: 2. food in the bag often not what ordered only to find out once arrived home, 3. standard of food going down ie greasy, king prawn biryani revolting. sometimes chillies...

I couldn't understand why it was so quiet in this amazing Indian restaurant. The food was excellent and terrific value. I can't wait to go back.

I have eaten here a few times and I can gladly report that it is probably the best in Basingstoke. The welcome is impressive and warm from the moment you walk in the front door. Smart and clean restuarant, that I have enjoyed going to. The food is really well presented as you would expect, tastes great and is good... More
