Travelled solo to Sidmouth found this gem on trip advisor and glad I gave it a go. Great poppadoms and pickles followed by good portions of keema rice, chicken passanda and two large onion bajhi's. Friendly service, great food and very reasonable what more could you want when in Sidmouth. Can't wait for the next visit. Thanks both

On first reaction, this restaurant is small, dismal and cramped, but the smell as we entered was divine! The service was immediate and the food was delicious and plentiful. We couldn't eat it all! This was one of the best curries we've had and if we're ever in the area again, will definitely be returning. We really liked the fact... More

Yes, don't be put off by the decor. Very much a feeling of eating in their front room . Very friendly couple and the food is very much like something they would prepare for friends. As its a small place booking recommended.

As a family of 4, we arrived in perfect time, before the restaurant filled up completely! This is a small but perfectly formed curry house & the food is out of this world! You supply your own alcohol, but can buy soft drinks. My son said he'd had the best curry he'd ever had in a restaurant! If we find... More

Have been here the last two years when visiting over Christmas. It is a gem. The food is fabulous. It is very small and rustic lots of business appears to be take away. Service can be a bit sporadic over busy times but very atmospheric and friendly. Grab a table when you can. It us not licencesd so you can... More

Don't let the basic decor put you off this little gem. This is probably one of the best Indians that I have visited - the food is superb. Will definitely be back.

As others have mentioned, if you let the decor put you off you're doing yourself a disservice. We found the service to be courteous and unobtrusive. The tiny restaurant was empty when we arrived but rapidly filled up with local clientele, which is usually a good sign. The food was beautifully cooked. Large chunks of tender chicken in both our...

the food here is the best in town, I'm always ordering my favourite dish (chicken tikka makhani) which I've never tried a dish that I like more. you tend to have to wait half an hour for food (take away) but it's well worth the wait. it's popular and the restaurant is very small so you definitely need to book...
