Very nice place. Just a takeaway (tikka starter, Lamb Dhansak, rice and naan bread). Very good flavours and very fresh. Portion size very generous also.

The staff went above and beyond. I wanted to try something different and a dish was recommended. It was too spicy so they changed it free of charge. The food was pretty decent too 😀

We do visit regularly because we live within walking distance and we like the food but the service is only really OK. You never get the impression they recognise you and overall whilst we like this restaurant if there was another Indian within walking distance we would definitely give that one a go.

I've gone many times to this restaurant for special occasions and it has never failed to disappoint! My Dad is practically a curry connoisseur (having eaten in so many of them) and always enjoys one from here. It's a small restaurant but with their well planned dining area you do have privacy and a cosy, warm, atmosphere. Their takeaways are... More

We decided at the last minute to get a curry rather than go for a pub meal. Google maps led us to this restaurant and we were chuffed that it did. They were fully booked but had a table they could give us for an hour and a half. Staff were helpful, friendly and very efficient. My wife had the... More

Went here at the weekend for the first time - had a wonderful time! Very busy and bustling inside, with lots of groups having dinner and lots popping in for takeaways. Food was excellent, wine was very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend it and look forward to going back!

This is our local Indian restaurant and it’s amazing! We use it to eat in and also for weekends’ take away. Every time the food does not disappoint, and the service is so friendly and helpful, they honestly cannot do enough for you. The restaurant is a little small, but the atmosphere is always relaxing and welcoming. I take my... More

Decided to have a curry last night on impulse. Luckily there was a table free and we enjoyed one of the best Indian meals we have ever had. Would recommend the Chicken Tikka Passanda and the Mixed Tandoori Balti. Will definitely eat there again.

Ok so this is an honest account of my experience and should serve as a warning to anyone who fancies a curry in Hythe. If you have read my reviews before you will know if it's good I say it's good if it's not, well read on. Service was ok, I don't expect much and that's what we received. The... More

With out a booking we thought we would ask if a table was available. The staff advised it would be a few minutes and they were true to their word. The service was friendly and paced just right. The food was just perfect, beautifully spiced and cooked. We love Indian food and this was one of the best meals we... More
