Enjoyable

You always have an enjoyable evening here. The menu delivers consistently and there are always new and interesting dishes to try - a bit different from the average curry house or the average curry house menu. I particularly like the tandoori gobi to start. Then I had the mustard chicken curry as a... read more

We ordered a takeaway from here and it was the most joyless thing you could ever have clapped eyes on. The poppadoms were stale, onion bhaji was limp and flat (had it been microwaved?) and the meat samosas although small, were quite nice. The mint sauce was too sugary and runny. Mango chutney was ok, but probably out of a... More

A tuesday night takeaway started well with excellent popadoms, dal tadka, pilau rice and sag aloo, but went downhill fast with three of the worst meat curries we've ever had. The lamb rogan josh was tough lumps of lamb floating in a sea of watery tinned tomatoes with no evidence of onion or spices. Perhaps it had once been a... More

Ordered takeaway tonight for dinner from this place - Chicken Bhuna, Garlic Chili chicken along with some Roti and Naan Bread. Chicken was uncooked and curry had no taste whatsoever - It appeared as if it was hastily cooked as an afterthought. The chicken pieces were hard and tasted horrible. To make things worse, Roti/Naan was uncooked (the first time... More

Our family of 4 regularly visit this restaurant. Our children, with a milder palate love the dishes mentioned below. The service is great and the food is always well presented, and more importantly - tastes great. Like most restaurants in Surbiton, they are very busy on Friday and Saturday nights, so advance booking is recommended.

Nice looking restaurant. Went sat night. ordered drinks and pappadoms. Pappadoms arrived and waited and waited for drinks for a long time. Main courses were a mixed bag. I had sag paneer and dhal massalla - both nice. My friends both ordered lamb dishes and were both disappointed. The lamb was in slices just like roast lamb .... not tasty... More

It took nearly an hour and a half from sitting down to getting our main courses, and we hadn't ordered starters. The restaurant wasn't even full. Food was ok when it came but the evening had been spoilt by then. Won't return.
