Visited with a group of friends recently and it seemed an enormous effort for the owner to be pleased he had customers, what a rude, miserable man. Not sure why he runs a restaurant business when it clearly makes him so unhappy. On the 'up' side my Chicken Dhansak tasted good but the meat was dry. At least the waitress... More

Stopped here after a saints game for a curry with my cousin. Got there about 530 and found it easy enough to park in the triangle. Early ish but a good time to go with plenty of tables to chose from. Service from the guys in their was very good, couldn't do enough to help. Went for the chicken jalfrezi... More

Personally think this is the best curry place in Southampton. Came here with a group of friends for a birthday party and service was good, waiter and waitress were friendly and the peshwari naan was incredible! Definitely coming back!

We returned optimistic after a disappointing takeaway a few months ago. We were pleased to find a relaxed atmosphere with charismatic staff. We went for a bitterne balti special which was packed with meat, though could have packed more "punch" with spice. The quantities were generous, the beer flowed and we were overall pleased with out Wednesday evening visit. Would... More

we went on a saturday at 7.30 and were booked. We felt that we were left waiting at the expense of take away customers as there was a steady flow the whole time, good for the restauarant, but not so good for us waiting for our meal. Along with other tables we were chasing our order and told it wouldn't... More

My favourite Indian restaurant in Southampton. Every time I go I love whatever I choose from the menu. This week I had chicken ceylon. My boyfriend has butter chicken every time as he loves it. I've also had the madras and the makhani I think it's called. Fantastic restaurant.
