Best Indian in Kemp Town

I live round the corner from this excellent curryhouse, friendly service, great hot curries. There sometimes is a little wait for your curry, but its worth the wait!

My girlfriend and I have eaten here twice now. Both occasions the food was excellent! The service was also very good. The price is comparable with other Indian restaurants and we would both highly recommend eating here.

We end up to this restaurant on our first night in Brighton and rather by chance. The food was good and in generous portions. We have been served by a waiter that did not show much enthusiasm in helping. We end up choosing a dish that was a bit too spicy for our taste.

I posted a positive review of this restaurant after my visit but I must have marked wrong because it got only two stars, not the intented four stars, bordering on five star. As a compensation, I now give it its 5 stars. Not only is the food very good, you have the impression that the restaurant does its outmost to... More

Decor inside needs a bit of updating, but the food is pretty good depending what you choose. My partner had a chicken chat for a starter wasn't great but the other dishes were nice. Think overall it isn't bad but you can get better value for money at the Chilli Pickle. Went there based off previous reviews, and wasn't as... More

Went here on a Saturday night. Nothing was wrong with the meal, but it wasnt the best indian meal I've ever had. The restuarant was full, so service was a bit slow, but the staff we're friendly enough. The lamb shank although was cooked nicely was in a grey watery sauce. It could have done with a bit of colour,... More
