We called to make a reservation on a Sunday evening in May, thinking it would be quite quiet. Told did not accept reservations but to show up. We arrived at 19:00 and waited along with two other lots waiting, but were seated within 20 mins or so. Did not feel too long to wait. Food was good, not the best... More

We eat here every time we are in Newquay, once or twice a year. The food is great as is the view. The staff are very efficient and it is very reasonable priced.

My other half had eaten at this restaurant over 10 years ago and loved it, so on our recent stay in Newquay we were looking forward to eating here. Yes, the restaurant was very busy, it was about 20.30 on a Saturday. We stood at the reception and were ignored for several minutes, then a lady approached and told us... More

We live 8 miles away but will happily do the 16 mile round trip for this curry treat. not the cheapest but you get what you pay for, The dishes are freshly made, very flavoursome with the right amount of spice without being overpowering for the sake of it. Would heartily recommend. Service (takeaway is all I can vouch for)... More
