This modern-Indian restaurant was very refreshing, the use of modern techniques and tools creates an excellent, sensory experience! The tasting menu is a must, and it is credit too the chef that as well producing different and delicious dishes, the simple, more classical items (like rice and naan) were exquisite, each with its own twist. I would highly recommend this... More

This is a great Indian restaurant - more of an experience than somewhere to eat. The food is fine dining Indian style with tremendous presentation to the extent that some of my colleagues took photos and posted them on Facebook! Great flavours with excellent spice blending with a good range of meats and vegetarian dishes. Taster menus with matched wines,... More

Lovely little restaurant on the bay, food was very tasty and staff very friendly. Quite small and very often busy so need to book in advance.

The menu is like no other Indian in the area so you do have to read each dish to find something you'll like. Candy... More

Starters were a bit odd, would liked to have seen more traditional indian starters. We had poppadoms and lovely chutney selection. The main courses were fab, lamb meat ball curry and chicken tikka masala clearly cooked from start and really tasted fresh with great flavours. Very happy and will be visiting for a tasting menu.
