This was my first time in Derry, and the first time I tried Indian food. I came here after searching for the best restaurants in Derry. They did not disappoint! The food was yummy, the service was adequate, and the staff were friendly. What made this even better was the view we enjoyed whilst dining. The restaurant was facing the... More

The food, the location and the service are all exceptional here. Simple menu with high quality produce. We enjoyed an excellent meal for four with starters, Mains and drinks. Reasonable price for the quality of the food. Try the RoganJosh Lamb and Kadai Chicken it's delicious. The guys are attentive without being fussy. As usual when you find a place... More

The prospect of indian italian fusion was a bit off putting but it was delicious The food was lovely, and the fusion actually did work. However, the drinks were disappointing, the cost of the 'cocktails' for cheap cocktail mixes and ice felt over priced and were disappointing. There was also a hen party in the resteraunt who had whistles and... More

Thanks for your appreciation regarding our unique fusion of Indian foods and its taste. Besides that our sincere apologies for the chaos created by the group of Hen party girls,which was a bit annoying and I myself as a manager tried my level best to take care of it at my level but the girls were so not in themselves...

We joined some friends here on Saturday night. The food was excellently prepared and presented and the service was extremely attentive, but not intrusive. Saturday night is extremely busy but at no stage did the restaurant feel crowded. A selection of poppadoms and dips are served as appetisers and the main dishes arrive soon after ordering. In comparison to other... More

As vegetarians we had a vegetable curry and a chickpea dish. Rice was included. The curry was nicely spicy with a very hot dried chilli on top. The tastes were fantastic, really generous portion sizes and the prices reasonable for Derry. Only issue was that the service was a bit slow.

Had an great Indian meal here, service was quick and the food was excellent, also good value because the mains all included either rice, naan or chips so no need to order separately! Highly recommended.

Again, this was only one of many visits to this fine restaurant. Serving both a great selection of Indian, and Italian food, with great views over the River Foyle. Service is very friendly, with in house recommendations. The food is so tasty, full of flavour, and very well portioned. Give it a try.
