Visited here on a wet, windy March evening, but had a warm welcome. Food was delicious, and the surroundings are just want you want from an Indian restaurant. Good to hear that the events in Blackpool keep these places going. Well worth searching this place out, we can't wait to visit again in October.

Very friendly service in very old school setting. The restaurant is accessed by a set of stairs to the first floor nothing showy and a little tired but clean. Food was solid not too greasy and amended as ordered. Really friendly and efficient service I would return when back in Blackpool
