The atmosphere in the restaurant is very pleasant. Staff is very friendly and, this doesn't happen often in tandoori restaurants, asks if we would like to wait between starters and main course. The usual way is that the meals come quite quickly after each other. The food was very tastefull and enough for everyone.

Thursday night curry was a great experience staff were not only efficient and helpfull they were just plain good fun to the right degree. Food was as usual high quality and served quickly. All round a nice place to eat. Only i negative from the group was the slightly small portion sizes of the curry

This is a great little restaurant, not to big and always busy, very polite and friendly staff. The menu has all the usual dishes and a wide range of specials. I have been here 3 times now and can honestly say its been tip top every time

A good Indian! Was very empty at 6pm on a Saturday so atmosphere was lacking. Would use as a take away in the future but not an evening out.

Tuesday and Thursday evening are banquet nights. Set price, choice of menu. Great food. Staff very helpful. If you can't eat all your meal, they're happy to box it for you to take away. Would most certainly advise booking.

Slow inattentive service an hour between starters and main no offer of more drinks to keep us occupied. Food was great well presented but slow to a point where we ready to go. If it's going to be slow please communicate with us not hide. Will not go back

This had been "bigged up" to me as being exceptional..sorry, I didn't find anything exceptional about it. Food was the usual standard fare, and I thought the service was unfriendly and not at all welcoming. Tables very close together..I really don't want to either hear or be heard when I am enjoying a night out, and was surrounded by some... More

Standard Indian restaurant menu priced competively. Food presented well, selected dishes were tasty and spiced accordingly. Service was good although it was early in the evening. The restaurant is in an older building in West St and gives a feeling of being a bit 'oldy worldy' but welcoming, which is a contrast to most Indian restaurants which can feel stark... More

Favourite Asian restaurant in Faversham. For a small town, we are blessed with 4 'Indian' restaurants, but this is by far the best. Friendly, beautiful food, will cook to individual tastes.
