Nice place. We had a warm welcome and the place was well decorated. The menu was varied and authentic and the food prepared well. Service was polite. I can't find anything to find fault with and we'd definitely use the place again.

It's rare to find such a consistently good restaurant. Everyone I take here raves about it - and for good reason. Masu Dal was the highlight on this trip.

Don't be afraid..... probably the best curry we have ever had and the service was exceptional, to be expected really. Not to be missed another hidden treasure in Dawlish.
