My wife and I visited Newquay and were recommended this restaurant and it lived up to our expectations. The view was amazing, right over the beach front. The food was exquisite, as was the service. The host was very entertaining and came to check that we were enjoying our meal. We will definitely be back when we next visit Newquay... More

Ok, being an Indian, I know what Indian food should taste like and let me say that it is brilliant food. I can't fault it. I've been coming here ever since I can remember and it just gets better and better. The owner is a fantastic host and the staff are very attentive. The atmosphere and service is also excellent....

Had a fantastic time. Wonderful food and service. Could not be faulted. We were a party of 9 and were entertained by the lovely owner who treated us all to a Birthday shot of Cornish Lust. Really a fantastic dining experience.

I guess on a wet January night in Newquay customers are few and far between, so our arrival may have been a bit of a surprise, even so the food and service were at best average and NOT cheap. Two meals ordered one mild chicken, one hot lamb, but both looked identical when they arrived and tasted much the same!!

We were sorry you thought the food was” average” We have been established for 35 years and serve authentic Indian cuisine prepared with the finest, freshest ingredients by highly trained chefs. All our lamb dishes are prepared from high quality leg of lamb and never from mutton.... More
