The best Indian food in the bay, each mouthful is an explosion of flavours. We are always welcomed by all staff upon arrival (Including the owner) and given undivided attention thoughout our visit, not forgetting complimentary liquers at the end of the evening!!

Decent place to sit and the service was prompt and well mannered. The quality of the food was good and it tasted nice too. The price is not too expensive and portions are reasonable. The mix grill and lamb jalfrezi were delicious and worth a try. They have a good choice of starters and vegetable dishes too.

Placed order over the phone and walked to collect. This is a restaurant too, but dogs not allowed. Looked lovely and clean inside and smelled fantastic. The food was piping hot when I got back to the holiday apartment. Beautiful food, generous portions. Will order next time we're here!

We are new to the area and thought we would try this restuarant on a whim and it was fantastic. The service was perfect and we felt very relaxed, welcome and comfortable. The food was beautiful and we even received a complimentary drink at the end of the meal. This will definitely now be our local !!
