we were welcomed in the restaurant which we had not booked. We only wanted one course and this was no problem. The food was delicious and piping hot. The waiter suggested we popped over to the local shop if we wanted to enjoy a drink with our meal as they were not licensed.

We ate here a few nights ago. We were served by a man who had the most disinterested style of service, he looked positively bored and instead of placing items on table he sort of just let them leave his hand without a care as to where the item ended up on the table, if you get my meaning.

We should have known what to expect when the cutlery was almost chucked onto the table as we sat down! A starter of papadam's arrived stale and the chutney tray looked like it was some else's left over tray. Main course was just ok. Nothing outstanding here, maybe it's because settle is a small town and so not a lot... More

Arrived to eat here on a very busy Saturday night after the Tour de France. Staff managed to find us a table, and the service was quick and efficient. Tasty food, and would recommend to others.

Very good Indian restaurant. Staff were very friendly and advised which dishes were gluten free for my wife. Service was quick and the food top notch. We will definitely eat here the next time we're in Settle. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

For the past six or so years I have eaten here after completing the Three Peaks of Yorkshire with a group of Explorer Scouts. Contrary to what some people have said we have always found the staff really friendly and helpful. The owner remembers us from one year to the next to the point where we would expect a phone... More

This an excellent restaurant. Varied and extensive menu selection and excellent and friendly service. No alcohol license but there is a handy co-op directly across the road, which is open 'til late. This is a regular venue for us and we can recommend it highly
