Very good food. Great prices and excellent service by the owners John and Mary. A place I have recommended to lots of people and always got excellent feedback. A restaurant worth visiting especially for Indian cuisine lovers

We ate here a few times — the set meal at 15€ is very good value with very large portions and authentic spices. Smiling service and pleasant surroundings, Bollywood TV discreetly playing in the background. Fridays and Saturdays can be very slow as they can't cope with the popularity — and all those take-aways seem to have priority!

A small tip, book a table before visiting the restaurant... More

One of the best Indian food experiences I've had the pleasure of enjoying! I went there with a group of friends and everyone got a different food ranging from Chicken Korma to Prawn Maharaja so that everyone could sample as many options as possible. To say that the food was delicious is an understatement. The waitress was friendly and was... More

The restaurant isn't the nicest place I've been to but the food and service sure make up for it. Lamb Rogan and the Vindaloo have always been great!

If you love Indian food you have to go. Food is abundant and delicious. There is lots to choose from too. The host is extremely courteous. The restaurant as such is nothing special, in terms of decor but I appreciate the Indian 'musicals' on TV, the Indian music and their costumes. It's nice to watch and comment on their culture...

I love this place. The service is wonderful and the food might be the best I've ever have. I had an Indian friend who actually recommended me of this place. I usually went here once a month to buy the chicken tikka masala, until I got a bit tired of it and wanted to try something new with lamb. The... More

We enjoyed the meal, all the cuisines were quite good. The only thing is that we had to wait for half an hour or even more. The take-away was even much quicker.
