Food is amazing! Staff are very attentive. Had no booking and had to wait to be seated for quite a while, so we were given complimentary drinks! It was definitely worth the wait and we have been back since.

Had a lovely experience at this restaurant - the food was better than any other Indian I've tried - particularly the chicken korma. It's a small place but was really busy and had a great atmosphere. The chef came around to tell us that all the produce was locally sourced and he was very friendly. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

Beautiful food even if in a little tight space.. the room is a little small if you wanted to have a private intimate chat with someone special as your near tables would be privy to your conversation

I have eaten here a few times and the food is always very good. They have a full range of spicy to mild dishes to suit everyone, even my fussy children. The staff are friendly, but the place is a bit cramped. There is a great view out over the river if you get a table by the window

Small restaurant on the quay in Waterford. Food reasonably priced but quite bog standard. I ordered chicken rogan Josh but there was nothing special about it, no unique taste and if im being honest would have tasted the same as a ready made Rogan Josh you would do in the microwave from a supermarket. They also couldn't wait to get... More

I love this restaurant! I try to eat here whenever I visit Waterford. They have a lot of choice on their menu and will offer advice or guidance if it is needed. The restaurant itself is in a great location, looking out onto the river and looks great from the outside. The staff are always friendly and welcoming, in particular... More
