Delicious food

I had been to this restaurant so many times and every time I try new varieties and I found it so delicious. I wonder how these people make food so good. I would love to visit at least once in a week. I found the customer service so humble and warm. The best Place to get Indian food around Boro,... read more

Sorry but our recent visit did not reach our expectations. The waiters were great, the atmosphere comfortable but the food, some of which was overcooked, was mediocre and disappointing.

The food was spot on and service was excellent, I would recommend friends, family or any other who wants to have proper Indian taste. The sea food n chicken tikka jalfrize is just awesome I would recommend them. Nice place to spend time wit friends n family

I have eaten in this Restaurant so many times in the past I have had so many take away's from here and drove back to Redcar and food still hot and tasty.

Working in middlesborough and found this place via trip advisor. Will come again next time here was excellent! Im from Birmingham so hard to please and menus were different. The chap recommended a garlic tikka chicken Balti as i would normally have a galic chilli chicken but this wasn't available. Was fantastic. Naans and rice were top notch as well.

Quiet midweek but expect it could be busier when uni students around. Staff very welcoming and helpful re ordering suggestions if you are not familiar with the dishes. Service and food very good. Sensible prices - had 3 poppadoms, 1 starter, 2mains 1 rice, 1 naan bread and 4 drinks for £33.
