Nice food

Eat here with a group of six friends. Great food and service. Good menu with plenty of choice. The only thing to be careful of is they do not have a license to serve alcohol but are more than happy for you to bring your own

Really enjoyed it in here a few times whilst on business. Boy but loads of pubs within walking distance and an off licence 20 yards away. Food, hot, tasty nicely spiced staff attentive and well priced.

Poor service, unwelcoming, bland food, we've been to a lot of Indian/Bangladeshi restaurants and this rates as one of the worst. A group of six people on a Monday night all consistent with our thoughts, would definitely NOT recommend!

I walked into the restaurant without a reservation and they were able to provide me a seat, but then I was forgotten about. It was completely my responsibility to get anyones attention to order, after which I was forgotten about again. I had been waiting for more than 20 minutes when a young waiter noticed I had not been offered... More

We come to Cornwall once a year for a holiday and always stop by Little India for a take away, which I'd recommend as highly as eatting in the restaurant. This time round we decided to eat in the restraunt. Honestly, we've never found a better Indian takeaway and we've been coming to Cornwall for many years. We got a... More

We came to this restaurant as we were told it was the best one in Penzance! Well if that's the best maybe we'll give Indian meals a miss! The food was decidedly average at best. Poor meat content in the dishes and what was there was dry &a tough. The dishes were full of onions for bulk and very little... More

If you think you will get true Indian food, forget it, but don't be disappointed. They call it The Spice Cuisine, and that is what it is. Lovely food, freshly cooked with spices. The only dish which was a great disappointment, was the Palak Paneer which was made as a heavy dish with Cheddar cheese. The Poppadoms were fantastic.
