I don’t own this restaurant nor am I related to any staff. In fact I’m living in Asia, have travelled the World and tried a lot of Indian food everywhere including on several visits to India. No Indian meal I ever had comes even close...More

Read the reviews of this restaurant before going in after walking past. Sounded good and we certainly weren't disappointed. The poppadoms came with a brilliant chutney I've never seen before plus usual ones in bottles rather than bowls. We skipped starters as can never fit...More

Excellent service and delicious food. Wanted a quick curry on Friday night. Started with popadoms with coconut pastel and mango sauces. Then a king prawn biryani with peshwari nan with sag paneer to share. A beer and large wine and the bill for the lot...More

Stumbled across this Indian restaurant in Lewes High Street. Don't be fooled by the underwhelming entrance at street level. The main restaurant is downstairs. Modern decor, attentive staff and freshly made authentic food. The chef even cooked us a paneer tikka which wasn't on the...More

My wife and I visited here and had a great meal. The menu is not extensive but the staff are extremely professional and very accommodating. The food was perfectly cooked and the price was reasonable. We will return.

One of the best Indian restaurants I've been to. The waiter was very attentive. The food was very tasty and a good price for the amount we got. The restaurant is nicely decorated and there was a nice atmosphere.

Not an inspiring entrance off the High Street, it looks like the take-away that it also is. Gloriously noisy, bustling and fabulous food which doesn't break the bank. A little on the hot side when full, which it usually is, but the waiting staff cope...More
