Once again we had a great meal with very attentive service. 25 of us pre-booked a few days beforehand for a meal after 10 pin bowling just up the road. All starters, main courses and sides were served quickly and everyone correct. The meals were very good quality and plentiful. The waiters were friendly and very helpful. Would recommend a... More

We went for a curry here, it was fairly empty when we arrived but we were early but filled up later. We went mid week in January. The decor is good, clean lines and the tables not too close together. The service was excellent and the food prompt. The lamb samosa starter was one of the best I've had and... More

This place looks great: modern, spacious, stylish, classy - an excellent first impression. Our waiter could have smiled a bit more but he warmed a bit as the evening went on (I think he may have been a bit shy!). Poppadoms and chutneys were good. The main courses were plentiful and beautifully presented but unfortunately they looked better than they... More

We visited as a family of 5. This was an early evening mid-week visit so the restaurant was completely empty. We were seated quickly, and offered poppadoms which were a little stale. But we were all hungry and since the waiter didn't come and check we ate them anyway. Starters and main were all a little bland. Although we all... More

It is quite a while since we were last here when we were rather disappointed. However on this occasion we were impressed and all but one of our party really enjoyed their dishes which were well cooked and served with the freshest papadums and nan breads that we have had for some time.

The food was OK, nothing special and maybe slightly over priced. What disappointed me most was the service. I was dining alone on a Sunday evening having travelled to Torquay for an early morning meeting on the Monday. From the moment I arrived I got the distinct impression that solo diners are not as welcome as couples and groups, the... More

Probably the worst curries of our lives. Nice setting , good service but desperately needs to replace the chef.

This is the first time i have written a review after eating out, but i just had to express my disappointment in this restaurant. First of all, staff seemed very disinterested in our custom. No smiles or pleasantries. Great range of meals to choose from the menu however when the food arrived - its was seriously lacking taste. I had... More

As a group of friends we've ate here a couple of times before and received good food and service. So we decided to visit again during our stay last weekend and just have to say how very disappointed we were!! It all went down hill with the various chicken mains many of us had as the meat was of very... More
