Service is very good. Food is fantastic!!! We normally buy Grab One vouchers for this and enjoy every time but funny enough never get the ice cream advertised in the voucher. We could ask of course but we're generally too full! Honestly the food is SERIOUSLY perfect and we also use the recommendations of our waiter who always remembers us... More

We've been here twice. The atmosphere is nice. It is in a good location, right next to the movie theatre, so it's easy to eat and go to the movies. The waiters are all very nice and helpful. The first time I had a mango lassi, it was perfect; the second time, there was a bunch of crunchy sugar granules... More

Stopped in for lunch as they seemed to have good specials - don't try to swap anything out though as you'll end up paying full price even though they say it'll only be $1. Portions were decent and the food was good.

We ordered the meal from our Motor Lodge, to which it was delivered. The gentleman helped me to decide on the dishes we chose, and the meal was delicious. I recommend the restaurant to anyone. I wish our town had as good a place to eat good Indian food.

We loved the crisp onion bhaji; the cottage cheese in the saag paneer was a great texture and chicken tikka masala was spicy and delicious. Wouldn't recommend the butter chicken unless you like it very very sweet. Good service. Would have preferred Bollywood videos to the mylie Cyrus on MTV. Overall very good experience.

This is one of the better Indian restaurants I've eaten at. We took no 13 which is a 2 course meal with mix of everything. The taste is great and good service, recommended if you are in Hastings

Great atmosphere and genuine Indian food. Best chilli chicken ever!! Service is spot on. It's place we go regularly, both dine in and take away. Works for whole family with choices on menu.
