Authentic Indian Food

Food was excellent. The Indian Street Food a delight. Plenty to choose from and each dish that we had was very well cooked and presented. Staff were attentive and service was perfect. Our first visit and will go again.

So close to being excellent but the staff letting it down. Service was slow, unorganized and rude. Havn't been for a few years due to this and return to discover the same. Food was lovely, real Indian food with fantastic flavors. The breads are the best I've ever had. Well worth a try, hopefully it was just a bad evening... More

ambiance of softly lit non-intrusive decor. Charming waitresses, linen, and outlook onto seafront and rolling waves.

Modern Indian food beautifully, elegantly presented, fantastically tasty. The staff are warm and knowledgeable, and the Manager, Parthenon runs a tight ship. The rogan ghosh is the best I've ever eaten, the bel puri is stunning and the breads are perfect.

The Atmosphere, service and food was brilliant. The food was dry, clean and fresh and had very particular Indian flavours that made the food really stand out from other Indian Restaurants that I have been to. The staff were extremely obliging and helpful. We will go back and this time with friends, so that they too can enjoy such a... More

The food was wonderful, tasty, the perfect amount of spice and just delightful! We tried Chef's tasting menu, it was worth every penny. The service was equally as fantastic ... I made the booking online and made a comment requesting a table over viewing the sea front area if available, and with the sun shining – I never expected this... More
