Came here twice in one week at Christmas . Me and my boyfriend loved the food and atmosphere. Best Indian restaurant in Derry. And complimentary poppadoms! And they offered to pack our leftover food up for us. Best Indian restaurant in Derry!

Really good food and great knowledgeable staff . The chef will cook you any dish you want even if it's not on the menu . This place is also not overpriced .

The food here is top notch...everything has its own flavours and you can immediately tell it's cooked from fresh...i went as part of a group party and everyone loved their meals..The staff are very friendly and helpful. Definitely will be back ..prices are so reasonable too and the amount of food was substantial. Brilliant

Not convinced and certainly not motivated to come back. We went mid week and it was very quiet but the staff seemed to be keen for us to leave at 8pm. That aside the food seemed to be more akin so someone having a bash at Asian cuisine rather than actually having any relevance. I am not sure if any... More

The simple answer to this is yes . There were three in our group nobody's meal was that good . I had chicken Jalfrezi... More

This restaurant serves lovely food and we have always enjoyed take aways. As for the restaurant, well it lacks atmosphere and has a very very limited wine availability. Maybe if they tried some promotions and had a better selection of wines it could be really good for a dining experience.

To be honest we probably would have driven past it only for TripAdvisor reviews. It doesn't look exciting from the outside but it Def makes up for it when you get the food. Staff are very friendly and helpfully. The food was quick and amazing to taste. Slightly different options available compare to the normal Indian menus and Def worth... More

Meal with wife seated at window. Menu dirty and black dust on dato rail. Menu has no hot to mild guide which is handy in an Indian restaurant. Food was spot on and if the interior and atmosphere was OK I'd score it 5/5. It does take much to clean, put I bit of bloody Indian authenticity - such as... More

Absolutely beautiful food. If you like good food and you tend to cook well at home usually (and you need a day off) and so you are decerning in food quality, then this is great. Hidden gem. Highly recommended
