More intimate than we expected, and more so than it appears from the outside. Very friendly and welcoming staff and truly delicious food. Will visit again.

A very nice small homely Indian restaurant serving excellent Indian food at a very reasonable cost. Plenty of free parking and also a 'take away' . Recommend a visit!

Amazing food with very attentive staff. We always go on a Wednesday for the special offer so go all out with the starter main and dessert. The jalfezi is my favourite followed by the coconut ice cream. Really want to give the Sunday buffet ago next time.

Food was lovely. I had a very tasty and very spicy Lamb Naga here... Would go again if in the area. If staying at Colchester Holiday Inn this restauarant is closer than those in Colchester

This is our favourite restaurant - they have a fantastic chef and the food is consistently delicious. The service is brilliant too and the staff are just so nice we keep coming back because there just isn't anywhere better in Colchester. Highly recommended!
