Excellent place for authentic Indian food

This place is one of my favorites in Southampton - it has a great ambience with good music. The staff is very nice, polite and helpful. I, very often, order home-deliveries from here and they have always been good - consistent, which is very imporant! PS - Try the dal-makhani here, it is my... read more

My husband and I usually use another curry restaurant but had heard good things about this place so thought we would treat ourselves. First impressions were excellent, bright, clean and well decorated. Spotless white table cloths, a complimentary Christmas cracker on the table and good service. We always start with a spicy and plain pupadom which didn't disappoint. The pickles... More

We are really happy with food test & service. I like Tanduri chicken best & butter chicken. It's my second time. They are always excellent. Don't feel doubt.

We visited this restaurant last weekend. Everything seemed like hard work to our waiter. My husband and I have been to almost every curry house in the area (if not every) over many years. My husband loves chilli and garlic rice. Not one restaurant that cooks fresh food has ever had a problem with this. We were told No. The... More

Recently moved to the area. Found this place very quickly. Wow. Been about five times now. It is truly the best Indian, for food, atmosphere, staff, welcome, did I mention food, and just about anything else that I may not have mentioned. The better half says I should not write this review, as we may not get a table next... More
