Great veggie curry

Had a great meal here - Everest vegetables (Nepalese dish) and a couple of veggie sides (dal and aloo gobi), all very tasty. Kingfisher and Cobra beer on tap and nice mango lassi. Attentive service without feeling hassled. Didn't have room for a dessert as portions were quite a good size!

Popadams come, ate them. Then were asked what we like for a starter, eat that then can we take your main.........waited so long in between courses, by the time the next course came I had forgotten I had eaten the first. Other people said the same.......kicking out takeaways and were left just sitting hoping someone will recognise you are waiting.... More

We visited this place based on recommendations, and booked a table for nine (two families) for a Saturday night. The booking process was very smooth, and the place busy when we arrived. Clearly, either the place was 'too' busy, or there are not enough staff. We encountered a delay before even being asked for drinks, and from that point onwards... More

The food is very good. Not your usual Indian it has a Nepalese twist as well as all the usual favourites. The staff are friendly and helpful. The take away is as good as the sit down meal. Well worth a visit if your ever in Penzance and fancy an Indian.

Our food was fantastic and the service was exceptional! We came here on our last night in Penzance but would definitely have come on multiple occasions if we had more time. The atmosphere and service were fantastic, and although we were thoroughly soaked and wind-beaten by the time we got here, the food was worth the walk from town. Would... More

Food was good in the way so many Indian restaurants in London have ceased to be. The staff were lovely, the was a bit of wait before the food was served so do order popadoms, but the food is great, and there is the usual risk of ordering too much. Visited twice, yum!

I have take aways from here, I havn't actually eaten in the restaurant itself. The staff are always very friendly and helpful on the phone, delivery punctual and I wouldn't look anywhere else for an Indian take away.

We visit Penzance a couple of times a year and always end up in this place, the service and food is the draw even when we don't intend to go there! They will always fit us in even without booking. The staff are very welcoming and the food is to a very high standard! We will undoubtedly be back early... More
