Just good

Was here in a business visit. We where the only ones in this restaurant. Staff was pleasant and facilities where clean. Food was good. I wouldn't say it was the best but is good enough. Prize was good. I recommend this restaurant. It was all right.

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

If you are visiting Bournemouth consider making the effort to walk up the hill from the town centre to this place. The food is good as is the service. Book in advance if you want a table for a specific time (especially if there are a few of you) but there were four of us not booked and after a... More

Have visited a couple of times with work colleagues who had been staying in a hotel nearby. The restaurant is pretty tatty both inside and out and it may be for this reason that it is dimly lit. As others on here have mentioned the food is unspectacular and very mildly spiced. So nondescript I can't recall what I had.... More

I always concentrate on the "Scores on the doors" ratings to which this was a 4 out of 5. It was very local to our hotel and staff were very attentive. Would wholly recommend, the food was lovely and although a tad expensive was worth it

Came here on our last night stay in Bournemouth with a group of 3 friends. Meals were delicious! We had various choices from chicken to lamb to vegetarian options and all were cooked perfectly. They were all Flavoursome and we finished pretty much everything we ordered and that was a lot! Service was friendly and efficient and pricing was outstanding!... More

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

Me and my gf were looking for ages for somewhere to go for food and finally picked here. So glad we did. Absolutely beautiful. Food was cooked perfect and very tasty. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Indian food.
