Apart from the bog standard dishes there are some interesting ones too, plus an excellent fish menu. Plus really comfortable seats, polite staff and good food, it's a winner. 😋

Biriyani was oily and flavourless and a rather rude delivery driver. Not had the chance to try the restaurant out. But wouldn't recommend takeaway from here as they seem to have a busy restaurant.

Came to Margate with my partner on a mid week getaway from London, but hadn't realised everywhere shuts extremely early on weekdays! Luckily this restaurant was open and the food was genuinely excellent..the tandoori dishes were particularly good - I'd happily come here again.

It has been a few months since we last visited this restaurant, and the food was still fantastic. We booked a round table for four and was not disappointed, the service and the food was great with some very nice complementary additions.

Not a huge fan of hot spicy food, but was treating my sister so decided to go for it, so glad I did. Food was tasty, service was excellent. Even after I told them I prefer milder flavours. They were very accomadating.

It was very quiet when we got there - and we were the only customers for a while - the staff literally watched our table the whole time which was off putting - the food was ok but not impressive - better when a few more customers arrived

Booked a table early evening, Great staff, Great service. Lovely food. At Horatio Heights our guests had all said how much they had enjoyed their meals here. It would be mean to even try to find fault. The entire meal was really enjoyable & as to cost, most reasonable. We will return, and let our friends know how good it... More
