Came here after walking all day desperate for food! Service was friendly. Had onion bahjis and a chicken dish to start, the bahjis were nice but the chicken was dry and chewy, the sauce a bit to overpowering. For main course we ordered Lamb Karahi and Chicken Rogan Josh. The lamb again was very dry and tasted like it had... More

We had been walking all day and were in need of good food. Not disappointed here. Service was very friendly and quick. Best onion bhajis I have ever tasted. We had the mixed platter to start with, which we fought over, the poppadoms, sauces and onion mix was very tasty. Main meals were to an equally high standard. Reasonable price,... More

Went for, what we had hoped would be a romantic Valentines evening, it was very cold and draughty as the font doors were continually being left open by the stream of 'take away' people in and out. Waited nearly an hour for the starters to arrive, they were a bit greasy and the mint yoghurt tasted off. Main courses took... More

We are 'almost regulars here - although we have not been since Christmas time - so it's interesting to see recent reviews - we will check it out tonight and comment afterwards! We have always found it (before tonight) very good and accommodating - and not too expensive. The staff have always been attentive and eager to please. My wife... More

Ill start with how the place looks, its an easy statement dated! with a little updating and a lick of paint this could pull this place back up to super standards. The food, which i based my review score on, was superb. The waiter was attentive and explained curries we didn't understand and the heat of the curry I wanted... More

2nd visit here. As it was ‘Fair Day’ thought it would be busy. It wasn’t. As far as I know, this is the only remaining ‘Indian’ restaurant now open in the town centre. Plus points – fairly modern, central to the town, ground floor seating (see below) ‘Festive menu’ at £13 was fair value, limited choice. Food was good. Main... More

This was not our first visit to the restaurant and the food was good again. They seem to have changed the menu now that they are the only Indian restaurant in Keswick and everything seems to be an extra. We enjoyed our visit but due to the price increase we will probably try an Italian on our next visit.

Very friendly staff, amazing food but would advise sometimes booking a table as I've known it to get quite busy! 😊
