Good food - family friendly

Went for an early evening meal while on holiday. They have Indian, chinese, pizza and European food on the menu strangely but we stuck to Indian. Other options were handy for the kiddies but they had korma and were happy out. We were the only people in the restaurant as it was early but still... read more

Food here is Devine, everything is full of flavor, fresh and all homemade. Menu is unique, much better than your average Indian. The staff are so so friendly, very obliging and welcoming. 5 * food, 5 * atmosphere, 5 * staff! Would recommend to anybody!

I was sceptical about visiting here, simply because there is so much variety in the menu, from steak to Chinese and from chips cheese and curry to madras. I stuck with the traditional Indian dishes and was pleasantly surprised. My boyfriend and I ordered about 4 veggie sides and shared them with rice and bread which I love doing. I... More

Had dinner recently and was very disappointed by the visit. Service was slow and request for water had to be made on four occasions. Our drinks order arrived at the end of our meal. Food was average and since our last visit I felt the restaurant has slipped.

We have been coming here for almost 10 years. The consistency of the food keeps us coming back. Whether hot and spicy, calm and creamy they have something for everyone! In recent years they introduced non indian food, also delicious and varied but we will always coming back for their tender spicy dishes as we love that best.

I used to love going to this restaurant and even when my mum visited me, I took her, my sister & best friend here as a treat because they love Indian food. Unfortunately though I bought a voucher and it was my mistake in that the expiry date was out by a few days. You would think they would be... More

I was given a voucher for 100 Euro from some friends as I liked this restaurant. Found out to my cost the voucher only lasted 3 months. I wrote 3 times asking could I extend and never got a reply. How mean to issue vouchers for only 3 months and not honor them. Crap customer service.
