Fantastic Meal

Ate many curries and have a favourite restaurant in Moseley which we thought was the best...The meal we had here was better. Lovely tastes, great service and setting. If we lived closer this would be our first choice from now on

We are a local couple who visit this restraunt on a regular basis and have always found it a pleasurable experience. The service is always quick, and the waiters are always able to advise us what we should try and how hot certain dishes will be. The staff are always hospitable and we have always found the food to be... More

We go to Torquay quite a lot and this the restaurant we always go to. It is, and always has been a wonderful experience.

can't really complain but it was nothing special. Tasty enough Pathia but not much meat. Highlight was a knockout gobi bhaji and nice cold beer. Service indifferent but ok.

We went here for a last minute meal on valentines day. The food was fantastic but they could have done with more staff as service was slow but I would prefer to rate the quality of the food which was great.

The first thing that comes to mind is that there's a lot of space - many other Indian restaurants seem to be too compact and quite uncomfortable. Good service, good food and value for money. I liked it, we'll be going again!!
