Decent food and good value

A traditional Indian restaurant just off of Whiteladies Road, it’s split over two levels with a street level and a basement. We were down in the basement, which perhaps lacks a little in the way of atmosphere, but is ideal for private parties, which ours was. The menu offered an extensive... read more

Great little place with a reasonably standard Indian menu but cooked to a very high standard, good service too. Food was very nice.

Real old school curry house that does the basics very well. The relatively limited menu is a bonus in my view as the current fashion for Indian restaurants to include 100s of options gives me a headache. Slightly over par on prices, perhaps because of its city centre location.

The hot dishes are not too hot which I like. The menu also has numerous dishes I hadn't had before. The establishment itself is very plain and a bit grubby. Full of hungry students enjoying their 10% discount!

We live on Alma Vale Rd and this is our local Indian. All the curry's I've tried have been amazingly tasty and the restaurant staff are all extremely welcoming and friendly. They also have an event room on downstairs floor which is great for large gatherings. Plus its BYOB, which makes it even more reasonably priced than it already is.... More

This is the greatest Indian restaurant in Bristol, considering the food, service and price. You will always get a good welcome and farewell. Me and my partner have eaten here many times and it has always been great. The bad reviews this restaurant has had I would put down to it being a small business and should be given an... More
