Good food and friendly staff

Well worth finding if you like your curry house old school, me and Mrs Bignose with our youngest had a very nice banquet meal (on Thursdays) and I have no problems recommending this restaurant, x3 substantial meals and a bottle of wine for just over £40

We arrived in Hastings after an 8 1/2 hr journey (3 hrs sat on M25) at 9 pm. We were both very hungry. We walked round from our hotel and found this restaurant which was still serving at 9.15 pm.

Tasty and palatable Indian food, less officious but kind service. Much less hot than expected. Nice walk on the Channel sea front after dinner, without being ripped off.

This is a Great Indian Restuarant with lovely tasting food that has great flavour and lovely fresh ingredients. The staff are friendly and the prices are very good especially on a Thursday or a Sunday where 5 courses are only £10:95! What A bargain. This is, in our opinion the best Indian Restuarant in Hastings, Bexhill & the surrounding area.... More

Being local I've tried most of the 'Indian' restaurants in St Leonards-on-Sea & Hastings and this is the only one I would recommend. The food is great, the fixed price Thursday & Sunday option is good value and we always have too much to eat, thankfully the friendly staff are more than willing to put what's not eaten into a...
