Great food

The best in Ipswich. Price is a little high but I don't might spending on something a little special.

6 of us ate here recently, we hadn't booked a table but decided to pop in and see if one was available, by pure luck one was sorted for us. The resturant was full and busy but the service we received was excellent. After the usual starter of popodoms and pickles we tackled the main course curries. Delicious ! I... More

The food was so tasty and fresh. Portions were big and food was exceptionally flavoursome. Staff were incredibly friendly, service was prompt and they spent time to answer my questions about a particular chutney. I love Indian food and this compared really favourably to other exceptional ones. We will definitely return next time we're in Ipswich.

Been here numerous times over the years and can't say a bad word about the place. Food and service is top notch, I would personally recommend the specials! Always a pleasure to eat here, and probably the most friendliest people you'll meet!

I have been visiting this place for many years and at times can be very difficult to get a table because of its popularity. I visited this place for my daughters birthday and everything about it was great. The service, atmosphere the food and the staff attitude,nothing was to much effort and we were not hurried in any way so... More

Veggie options are scattered throughout the menu, helpfully colour-coded in green. We were part of a group of four and all were impressed with the food. I tried the raman soup and a main course involving squares of paneer cheese - tasted great (apart from the bit that got out of control and plummeted to the floor, but can't blame... More

Booked last minute so very lucky to get a table, sat upstairs. Good room . Food was excellent, full of flavour. Piping hot. Plenty of choice. Service was very attentive but not overboard..

Visited on business, having visited several times in the past. The restaurant continues to pride itself on its appearance and cleanliness - the toilets being virtually spotless. The service is attentive and very polite, with the lady maître d being a polished professional. My only slight (and it is slight) negative was the tandoori prawn main, which was not brought... More
