We have been here a few times, most recently on a Saturday when all the other restaurants were full because of the show at the BIC. We were welcomed and shown to our table, the place was very clean and well organised. Our order was taken quickly and our food served. It was hot and just what we expected. Only... More

Loved this restaurant The food was excellent really enjoyed it. The staff were attentive but not over attentive. Portions were good, lovely balance of spices. I would certainly recommended it . Will be going to Bournemouth later in the summer and definitely be eating here again.

Went here with a couple of friends as it is across the road from the hotel we were staying at. The receptionist recommended it and gave us a discount voucher. The smell was amazing before we got there, and we weren't disappointed. The food was delicious. We had a sharing starter and each had mains. Food was plentiful. Service was... More

Ate here twice in one week. Both times had a great meal. Portions good, balance of spices perfect. Recommend their dish 'Lamb Tawa' (also available with chicken or prawns)' the spice hits after a couple of mouthfuls and is very pleasing. Chicken vindaloo also a good level of heat.

The décor of the place clearly showed a lack of investment, we were in a conservatory to the right of the entrance which looked very tired. The food was plentiful and of reasonable quality. its not the best but okay if your in the mood for an Indian meal.

Ate here about six years ago and again last week. Good food both times. Was very pleased to find out it's the same people running it. Excellent selection of favorites, well staffed, nice location one block from the beach.

A friend and I visited this restaurant for an early evening dinner the food was first class and by going early the restaurant was not overcrowded the service was spot on and the cost was not the cheapest in town but the quality of the food made it well worth the little extra it cost value for money indeed!

Good menu. Decent quality food. Good atmosphere. Smart restaurant. Good location for rest of resort. Spoilt by inattentive service - no-one came to apologise for the hour long wait for our main course, no-one asked if everything was ok. No-one checked by to see if we needed more drinks.
