Quiet but tasty meal

We were here with a Groupon voucher, and were very pleased. The place was quiet, as they just opened for the evening session. Food was really nice, and good service. Would be back if in the area, and do recommend it.

Very slow service to say there were only 2 other tables occupied, waitress seemed to have never waitresssed before, didn't listen to our order correctly, had to come back and check things even though she had apparently written it down and then calculated the bill wrong at the end...disappointing experience for otherwise tasty food.

Suggest trying the kadai, ask them to make it a bit more spicy. Great staff always helpful in your choice. Good prices. Good location for after a film.

we had read the reviews but were having trouble finding another indian restaurant so went there anyway. It seems to be one of those places that has a big vat of sauce no matter what you order and the dishes were very sweet. Always telling when it is empty on a saturday night at 8pm

Would not recommend, it seems like they don't know what they are doing. Service very slow, food not great . Have eaten in lots of Indian resturants and this was the worst, pompadoms were even stale. Did give big rice portions but that is only positive thing I can say.

Had a really nice meal here. Was open later which was good as we were a bit late getting to Exeter. Service was very nice and the food was great. Portion sizes were about right too.
