Lovely takeaway....

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... read more

Get a grip peeps...this is a friendly, value for money, tasty place to have a good curry, it doesn't pretend to be anything else. 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

All served by a friendly and efficient waiter at a very good price.No alcohol licence so take your own alcoholic drinks, glasses are... More

Those that visit a lot of curry restaurants for many years will know what I mean! There is even one wall with partial flock wallpaper although the restaurant is modern. Disappointing start when tea was not available as an alternative because they have no alcohol license. Mixed Tikka starter was very good on a sizzling plate and shami kebabs ok... More

This place will cook you anything to suit you, if its not on the menu a quick chat about what you like will see you eating an amazing dish, the staff are polite and the place clean and the food outstanding, no wonder famous faces eat there.

We liked the food, which was very tasty and the staff made us feel welcome. Definitely a good place to go to for a pre Theatre dinner.

I am a notoriously slow eater, so found the service initially a little over attentive, with a slight tendency to try and rush me through the meal. But the food was excellent and the setting comfortable. Would definitely go back for the food.

Ate here last week, struggling to be positive. The poppadoms were average, the mango chutney was very watery!! The meal didn't do anything for me. The waiters looked unhappy and there was little attention to detail.
