Fabulous food with good service.

Fabulous Indian meal competitively priced in central location. We arrived without a booking and were made welcome with a drink until a table became clear. Great food and efficient service. We would certainly return.

Having been eating Indian food nearly 40 years all over the UK and abroad this was probably the worst meal I had. Take Away Lamb Madras. 6 or 7 pieces of lamb in a sauce that would be better from one of the local supermarkets. Poor and tasteless to be honest. Overpriced. My wife's meal not much better. Plus a...

3 of us went last night, first thing I noticed was the prices, as a previous reviewer said this place needs some competition, the staff were friendly enough,but the food was nothing special

I've been eating curry for over 30 years and this has to be one of the worst. Rushed service, bland and expensive. This place really needs some competition. Don't even bother.

My friends and i visited this restaurant after a long walk from Grasmere. After being out from 9am to 8pm we were extremely excited for a delicious meal as we were starving! The first thing we noticed was the pretty steep prices on the menu. The restaurant was not well presented and the menus were tatty and so we were... More

Having waited for 20 minutes for my takeaway, as they do not deliver, I returned to the restaurant to wait another ten minutes. I found myself surrounded by staff mulling around and awaiting for people to finish eating. This is a pet hate of mine, a person watching while you eat to swoop down and take plates etc as soon...

... Then sadly this isn't it. Arrived at in dining area and quickly seated, unfortunately it was all downhill from there. Took ten minutes to be asked if we required a drink and when we asked what choice of draught lager was available were told that the only option was Becks?.? In an Indian restaurant ??? Didn't see that coming.... More

I can't understand the poor reviews I have seen here. My husband and I regularly eat at Indian restaurants nearer home in Wakefield which are very good. We ate at this one today and were pleasantly surprised at the service and delicious food. Yes it's a little more expensive than at home but what do you expect! The restaurant is... More

We always fancy a curry when we have our weekend breaks. This does seem to be the only Indian restaurant in Keswick leaving us with no choice where to go. I have to agree with a lot of the previous several reviews in saying that the service and quality of food needs addressing and improving. I do not need to... More

The food served at this Indian restaurant in no way resembles any food I have ever eaten before. As a long time eater and fan of the kind of Indian food one comes to expect in London, I must unfortunately say the London quality of food has simply not extended out to the Lake District in general, and certainly not...
