Lovely Food

Extremely tasty food. Perfect Indian cuisine in a modern clean environment. Staff were friendly and very attentive. Too many kids on our visit but didn't distract too much from the food and had a very enjoyable meal. Would definitely return next time we are in Bournemouth!

This restaurant was between our hotel town centre. It looked busy so we took a chance.We were greeted and shown to our table, given menus. Popadoms and drinks ordered soon after sitting. Given plenty of time to chose our meal. There seemed plenty of staff running around and the restaurant soon filled up. The meal was excellent with excellent service.... More

I have visited this restaurant before and had a great meal, however from start to finish tonight the meal for our group took over two and a half hours. The food was not brilliant and not like I've had before which was a real shame.

I went with a large group for a stag do. The restaurant staff were not attentive and took forever to bring any food out. They were only interested in serving everyone Cobra after Cobra. Clearly this is where they have a great profit margin so want to sell as many as they can. As I was not drinking all I... More

We chose this restaurant as the more rated Mint Leaf was empty and we were very glad we did. The food, service and staff were 5 star and we would recommend this place to everyone. We eat Indian food quite often and we are hard to please but this place did its job and would like to visit it again.

Had a pleasant meal at the restaurant with my wife whilst visting Bournemouth for a couple of days. Located not to far from the international centre although up hill! Pleasant welcome and quick in taking drink and later food orders. Good menu with some tempting set meals, lowest at £18 pp. Poppadoms with a good 4 choice of dips were... More

We were staying in Bournemouth for 3 nights and our hotel recommended this Thai restaurant. A sign of a good restaurant is by the number of people in the restaurant and this restaurant was busy. The food, ambience and the staff were excellent and just before we were leaving they brought out an ice cream with a candle for my... More
