Beautiful food, curry and beer is inexpensive compared to other places in the area. Very friendly staff, never had to wait to be seated, quick service. Favourite place to eat in Loughton, not even just my favourite Indian restaurant.

Birthday meal for my daughter on busy Saturday evening. Very friendly staff and nicely presented food. Not your typical bowl of curry on a warmer. Have been using for years for treats and they don't disappoint.
