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.

Having not made a booking, we couldn't have been made more welcome on a very busy Valentines day evening. The staff quickly found us our table and took our oders. The food arrived promptly, looked and tasted wonderful. We could really taste the flavours and everything seemed freshly produced. We had a popadoms as our starter and the set menu... More

Came here on business and not disappointed. It is very food value for money and also the food is of an excellent quality. Thoroughly enjoyed my meal and even on a Wednesday this place is busy . Great food and I will be back.

The outside appearance is deceptive - the exterior is not charming but, do visit, food was excellent, service was good and prices reasonable. Top tip - we went on a Saturday night and by 20:00 the restaurant was full - so either book or try and get there early to ensure you get a table.

Went here for Valentine's day and I got to say it was one of the best meals we've ever had, we had the set menu for Valentine's day which was starter, main, rice, naan and a glass of wine, the chicken Madras was one of the best we've ever tasted, and the Tikka was just lovely. It was great service... More

Booked table and we were wary considering some of the bad reviews on trip advisor. Have to say we were very impressed. Welcome and service was excellent. Food was very good and overall value for money compared well to our usual Indian restaurant back home. Very impressed and if we are back in Bournemouth will definitely visit again.

Our Grandaughter and her Fiancé returned from New Zealand and wanted to celebrate with a good Curry. We chose this restaurant based on a recommendation. It did not disappoint. The service was very good and the food tasty. A pleasing experience. We will be back.

Very friendly and attentive staff. Food was brilliant (Chicken tikka Parthia, Mutter paneer and a lovely Thin Paratha) this is my second time I've been here and I'm already looking forward to the third time! The first time I ordered too much, as the portions are generous - so I ended up with a Take away for lunch the next... More

The portions are generous and food very tasty. The restaurant was busy on a Friday night but service very attentive. We had onion bhajis, bhuna prawns as starters; then chicken korma, pilau rice, sag paneer, peshwari naan bread and it was all delicious.
