The best curry house for miles around. Great service and wonderfully tasty dishes ranging from giant prawns perfectly spiced to chicken Xacutti a traditional Goan dish recreated very well. We all enjoyed the food and no need for a doggy bag!!

Having had a number of good meals over the past few years, we ordered a take away meal of 3 people cost £38 including a 10% discount. Thats what it costs so no problem. When we sat down to eat the contents were cold and very sparse on meat in the Dansak and the chicken in another meal was extremely... More

Pleasant waiting area. There was a delay being shown to our table which had been booked and we were hungry! An apology for the delay would have been nice and perhaps a little snack or two to keep the hunger pangs at bay. A great selection of food on the menu and it was very tasty and well presented. Can't... More

First visit here, the restaurant is well kept and has a nice atmosphere. The staff were helpful and friendly and the food was very good indeed, albeit not particularly cheap - you get what you pay for!

We have visited this restaurant a few times over the past years. This restaurant would have got a 5 star rating if there were more mild dishes to choose from (Sunday buffet). The atmosphere is good and the service is friendly. If you come on a Sunday like we always do, they have a Sunday buffet. The starter is very... More

I've been here a few times now and the food has always been above average in quality and certainly one of the best Indian restaurants in the Medway towns. It's a little on the expensive side, but you really do pay for what you get and I feel its worth every penny. There is a great menu selection, service is... More

Having used this restaurant on a number of occasions in the past the service tonight was not up to the normal service and considering the service charge they put on the bill it was not warranted

I have been a few times now and it is the best Indian restaurant we have ever been too, the service is very friendly and professional and the food is absolutely first class. My only negative comment is that they add a service charge to the bill were I would rather reward the waiter in person.
