Fantastic Indian Food

We had Chicken Tikka and Vegetable Samosas for starter, which were probably unnecessary as the portions were huge, but they were very tasty.

My wife and myself went for a meal here on Saturday 7th March. We were shown to our table by a very nice young lady. There was a nice atmosphere as many of the tables were occupied and it had a cosy feel to it. We had starters and a main course each. The starters arrived quickly - a mixed... More

Decor is a little dated but food was superb. Flavours lively in Rogan Josh and Saag Gosht. Service was quick and overall a good experience. Highly recommend.

Myself and my partner booked a table for a special anniversary dinner. When we arrived, even before we were seated, we were advised that they would need the table back at 8.30pm, just over an hour later. We wanted to order the meat samosa as a starter but were told they were not available so went for the onion bhaji... More

I have eaten here many times and always find this place one of the best in Cork for Indian Food. The service can be average most of the time and the atmosphere a bit dry! But the food is good especially the Murgh Makhani, lamb Bhunas and the Balti dishes. I find the best freshest cooked butter nan breads come... More

Was disappointed that the Indian spices were limited to the "Western" pallet (as the waiter explained) and food was not that good. I ordered shrimp biryani and asked the waiter to make it flavorful. This is when he informed me that the dishes on the menu didn't contain the Indian spices I was accustomed to. My dish came out "spicey"... More
