love this curry house, with a welcome pre-theatre menu right next to the Bristol Old Vic. Food is fresh and tasty and the service is excellent too. Well worth a visit.

We were here for a birthday dinner. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was quite good, although we did question if some of the meals brought to us were what we'd ordered. We had poppadoms and a main each (and miscellaneous sides and soft drinks) and the price was less than £15 per head. The venue is BYO... More

Food was ok - not greasy or horrible - but slightly underwhelming. Main issue was that it took double the time estimated on order to arrive (80 mins instead of 40).

We were looking for somewhere local to the area, and this looked good from the outside with an appealing sounding menu. The service was friendly and prompt. As for the food, the tamarind chicken was delicious, although the curry chicken lacked a bit of flavor and could have done with more spice. The mains were not too oily which was... More

Had vegetable biryrani with vegetable curry. Well presented and tasted good too. Only a few people in restaurant eating in, but it was a Sunday evening. Bring your own so an evening out doesn't cost too much. Would go again.

Food was flavoursome and delicious, hot and not overly spicy. Chilli rating could be hotter. Watch out for cardamon pods and curry leaves in some dishes. Fresh tasty and would definately return with friends!

One of the best curries place in Bristol! Amazing!! The staff was very nice, very welcoming. The only negative point was the restaurant was quite empty and the service was quite long. But globally the nice waiters was catching up on that

The food is quite bland. One dish had spilt and curdled so tasted wrong. My wife had a skirt on and has bites all over her ankles. The place could do with a re-vamp. I'm sure we were overcharged. There were only four of us in the restaurant so the atmosphere was a bit awkward.

We got a groupon £15 for 2 courses for two people. 2 lovely starters and then my main, a rizzala, was burnt. We were also CHARGED for rice! £5.50 so the whole thing was a con. The man knew that, had it written all over his face.
