Return visit 6 months later and still really good

This is the best Indian in Newbury. I met and old friend here 6 months ago and ended up returning here for a catch up and great food. The place was really busy for a Wed nigh, in fact when I booked it I got the last table. I think there was a birthday bash going on it was slightly... read more

We ate here with friends for a birthday and the food was absolutely delicious. Really tasty and good portion size. The thing that really lets this place down is its service and manner of the staff. Taking our order was painful. The food took forever despite being the only ones there and the staff were not attentive at all. We... More

An interesting and unusual menu. I ordered papodoms and chutneys to start and a main course of Lamb Jalfrezi (I requested 'hot') with Jeera Pulao (cumin rice) and raita. The papodoms and chutney were disappointing; a bit like eating stale cream crackers with apricot jam and a faintly minty creamy sauce. However, the main course was outstanding, hot, spicey and...

This is not a typical English Curry House - It is a very authentic Indian restaurant with a wide variety of dishes including lots of vegetarian offerings. You will read earlier reviews about people complaining about being asked "How do you want your dish spiced - Hot, Medium or Mild?" but to me that makes complete sense. Tailor the dish... More

Staff was friendly and accommodating. The food was well prepared and the service level good. All in all a nice environment to eat in, combined with good quality food.

We have been here a few times now and have always enjoyed the food. It is not standard Indian but provided variety and choice of depth of heat. No poppadom and chutney tray so no over stuffing. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable and there is an interesting variety of wines

Exquisite food that you can taste every single flavour. Great menu but not too vast and everything tasted fresh. Can get a little noisy and overcrowded if there is a big party but you have to expect that in smaller restaurants. Overall a real winner for authentic cuisine

Haven't been here for a couple of years(can't think why) and had forgotten how good it is. The service is friendly and quick and the food comes piping hot and you can chose how spicy you want it. The lamb I had was so tender it just melted in my mouth and the Kashmir naan was really tasty. Portions are... More
