Small establishment providing a nice choice of vegetarian asian food, buffet style. Food well presented albeit that overall, was a bit bland, for my own personal taste. However, clearly has a good base of regular clients, a positive sign and is amazing value for money,...More

Went with my girlfriend for dinner, on a friend's recommendation. She was impressed, me less so. The food was of good quality and the staff friendly. However, the restaurant was very cramped and had limited food options available. Although, the price was very cheap (£7...More

Lovely food with buffet style service. Buffet is vegan, hot, tasty and as spicy as required. The Daal is to die for. Serves basic range of Indian beers and wine. Very gentle, welcoming and inclusive. Awesome food

Bargain buffet. I was in two minds as the buffet is strictly vegetarian but not an issue if you are not.Really affordable and a couple of dishes to fill you up, including chocolate rolls and melon as desserts.

We were lucky to stumble across this. No frills vegetarian indian food. We didn't really know what the dishes were but as everything is vegetarian we knew it was safe and was all very tasty. Considering it is in Brighton it was very good value.
