Still probably the best Indian in Penzance, but has been a bit off the boil recently. The prices are creeping up too and the bill is quite high even without the alcoholic drinks which of course is BYO. I am sure it will try harder in order to retain its good reputation

Don't be fooled by the narrowness of the entrance. The restaurant is far bigger than it appears. Attentive staff, great cuisine and you need to take your own drinks as there is no alcohol licence.

The street cred is not encouraging but once through Little India's doors you will be pleasantly surprised by the tasteful and interesting décor. The food was excellent, the service could not be bettered, quietly efficient, no hovering! A word of warning! Portions are generous. This being our first time we were not prepared for the amount of food and started... More

I've been here a few times and it never disappoints. It's not the best Indian around, but the service is good and the prices reasonable. You have to bring you own alcohol. While most of the menu is the usual Indian fare, the specials are what makes this restaurant worth a visit.

Recently travelled to Penzance to visit relatives, one evening we decided on an indian take-away and as this was local gave it a try. Was not disappointed, lovely tasting curries and so much meat. Portions great sized too. Will definatley be calling in again when im back in Penzance.

Me and my partner ate here on the off chance! Both Currys were tasteless and watery! Microwave meals taste better! Will never return or recommend!

There are not many options in menu, and not very close to authentic Indian food. They use some food colorants in some dishes which made it look horrible.
