The customary 'drinks and poppadums' questions was more or less immediate as we were offered menus to choose our meals. Kingfisher on draught was very good and reasonably priced for a restaurant.

The bestest, tastiest Sheek kebabs ever. No one gets near to them. The chef is the tops. Whatever main meal we have, we are never disappointed. We have used these for years. The service is always warm and welcoming. Highly recommend.

Visited while on holiday in Torquay restaurant is lovely and airy. Staff were very attentive. Can only rate the food at 10 out of 10. The best Indian cuisine were ever tasted. Will go back again when we are on holiday.

Enjoyed a very pleasant evening meal. Try the Cylon Curry, very nice with garlic rice. We were a party of 4, turned up at 9pm on a Friday evening, mid summer, Staff found us a table immediately and were served in good time. Food was well prepared and very tasty. Bill came to about £70 and this included 3 beers.... More

4 of us visited this restaurant, what an excellent choice it was. 2 of us had a vindaloo which was amazing. All the staff were helpful, there was no rush to finish our meal, there was also a nice waiting time between courses. The whole atmosphere here was great. This restaurant is also reasonably priced.
