Excellent food and service

Excellent food and service. Very family friendly. Only down side was I found the prices expensive. £12.95 for a tikka masala before rice and extras was what I would it expect in a plusher restaurant. However the Lamb Madras was as good as any I had tasted.

Great fresh food, friendly attentive staff. My starter of tandoori chicken was fantastic. The lamb in our bubba was so tender.

My husband & I were in the area to see a show and called in here for dinner. We were shown straight to a table despite not having a reservation & it being very busy. We only had just under an hour before the show but the staff were very efficient & took our orders quickly and brought the food... More

Absolutely delicious food, generous portions & very reasonable pricing. We visited here on a Saturday night, it was very busy but we didn't wait long for a table - the restaurant has ample seating. Service was very good considering how busy it was & we didn't wait too long for the food. Definitely recommend this restaurant to all Indian food... More

My husband and I came to this restaurant after reading trip advisor reviews and it was definitely worth the visit. Although we had to wait for a table as it was so busy, it was worth the wait, the service was prompt and friendly and the meal was delicious. I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Bournemouth.

Having a weekend away in Bournemouth and looking for somewhere to eat. Walked past the restaurant and it looked good so despite not having a booking we got a table. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. Highly recommended if you're in Bournemouth.
