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
