This is a lovely little restaurant with very attentive staff and varied menu. The lamb, tandoori, and chicken korma dishes were excellent and very reasonably priced. We've eaten here several times on our visits to Chichester and never been disappointed. Well worth a visit. You'll be well taken care of.

What made my experience special was the friendly and fun staff who made such an effort to engage with us (a group of nine people). The food was delicious of course and the ambience of the restaurant was comfortable and pleasant, but it was the way we were looked after that made all the difference - so 'Thank you' to... More

Was quite surprised when I found this restaurant open on a Monday. The choice is huge, which made it difficult to decide what to have. The waiter helped us and recommended a chef's special. In case you order naan bread, please remember that on bread is enough for the 2 of you. Taste was wonderful, will go there again.

We traveled 20 miles to go to this restaurant on Wednesday and arrived at 12 noon which was the advertised time for opening but by 12.15 the closed sign was still up and the restaurant was in darkness so we went to a local Chinese restaurant which was open.

Fantastic gem of an Indian. Highly recommended - Butter Chicken is to die for. Good value and good service.

Visited on a Thursday evening. The food was excellent- Butter chicken, Mixed Grill, and sides - very tasty. Service from Hussein was welcoming, helpful and polite. He was able to help us in our choice of food- not too spicy for me, and explain some of the less familiar dishes. We will be back!

Visited at 7 pm and no table available, so asked to come back at 8 pm no problem, service and food very good with good house wine at reasonable prices. The building outside looks lovely, what spoils it inside is its tacky red and black plastic chairs which have clearly seen better days.

Very rude staff who had absolutely no idea what I was asking them, but kept saying "yes" to my questions. Spoke in a different language one too many times about me and over me. Spoke in a tone that showed no patience when I asked a question. Made me feel very unwelcome so I left without ordering my take away... More

Don't be put off by the look of this strange looking one storied building. Once you go in you are greeted with an old fashioned warm welcome, the staff are very helpful and attentive. The food is delicious and second to none and not expensive , we visited on a Tuesday evening and had their extra low price deal which... More
