We are here on a Sunday evening and were soon joined before long by many others. Service was friendly and efficient and the food came quickly and was delicious. We would come back, given the opportunity of passing through Settle again.

We have eaten here twice now and the food is outstanding. On both occasions we had friends eat with us and they too commented on how lovely their meal was. Not a large restaurant but large enough and nice decor. On the main square in Settle so a window seat allows you to take in some of what is going... More

Avoid and don't waste your money. We had a takeaway which included chicken tikka masala and lamb rogan josh. The masala sauce was the colour of dish water and tasted of nothing but hot spice, I have never tasted anything like it in all my years of eating Indian food. The oil on both dishes had to be drained off... More

We eat here quite often and also have takeaways. The staff are friendly and the food is good. Wide choice on the menu but the Jaflong dishes are excellent. Not licensed but take your own and no corkage - if you forget the Co-op is just over the road!

We visit Settle once a year and love going here for my hubby to have plenty of good tasty food after his Three Peaks run, it does the job. Starters were great, Mains good too and... More

If you have any driving time i.e 30 mins, drive straight past. Found staff ignorant, arrogant and selling Asian food my daughter would make at home more authentic. Give it a miss and at least hit Bradford for a curry. LOL Bfs Lass ,

The best Indian food you can have anywhere the world over and I love food. I last came here in 2010 and couldn't resist another visit whilst passing. I've travelled and eaten at restaurants half the world over including most of India. Forget the haters reviewing on here, 90% of the reviewers saying its GOOD or EXCELLENT can't be wrong.... More

We had a take away from here the other night and where surprised at how nice it was. We both got the Handi curries, mine was lamb and my wifes was the chicken. A little bit oily but very tasty with a hint of the tandoori oven on both our meats. With rices and garlic naan the cost was £23... More
