This is Wells' only Indian restaurant so no competition. Decor and ambience dull. Food OK but nothing outstanding. Friendly staff but aura of 'somewhere else'. Not easy to access with strep stairs. Entrance unprepossessing with piles of empty boxes. Needs some revival!

Went here for a groups Christmas do. Restaurant is upstairs (one flight) so is hard to access for some. Staff all very friendly and not too pushy... Food was of a decent quality and good value for money. Most likely to to return at some point but not for a special occasion.

From the outside walking in it wasn't what I expected. Walking up the stairs it was like walking into someone's flat but as you walk in it was on the small side ( tables very close together). The service was nothing outstanding but ok. The food wasn't unpleasant, hot and plentiful. We did ask for one meal to be 'nut'... More

From the outside it looks like a takeaway (which it is) but venture upstairs for an excellent meal at a good price with friendly service.

Great service, food well cooked, just missing something, very bland for Indian food. One meal was missing ingredients (mushrooms). We did not come away hungry but also not stuffed. A little overpriced for the amount of food that was put in front of us. Can away a little disappointed.

To look at this place either from the outside or inside you would automatically think that it's nothing special, just your typical Indian restaurant found in most towns. But this one is a little gem, the choice of meals is wide, the service is attentive but not intrusive and the food itself was perfect. There were 4 of us and... More

I have to be honest, the entrance to the restaurant was very off putting. However they opened the restaurant early for us and we couldn't fault the service. The food was good. We've had better but we've also had much worse.

Ordered a great tasting takeaway but sadly the wrong food arrived. Staff were not prepared to change to order. However even though it was the wrong order it was one of the best tasting takeaway meals I have had

Very good value, funny little stairwell the go up to the restaurant, worth the small climb. Staff were very attentive and made suggestions, offered advice on meals and served the most tasty and BEST Indian meals we have ever had. Wonderful, recommend this to all who love Indian food.
