First and foremost, the food was fantastic! The staff were super friendly and for a takeaway order, were more than accommodating. We ordered the "typical" butter chicken and lamb rogan josh - and was just delicious.

This is a great restaurant, in a town with several very good Indian restaurants. The service (takeout) was excellent from my phone call to pick-up, with only a short wait for my food. They knew who I was and greeted me as soon as I walked through the door, and very genuinely appreciative of my custom. The lamb biryani and... More

Ordered a takeaway lunchtime meal Tuesday and what a super lunch we had. When I arrived a charming man who may have been the owner or manager offered me a seat whilst i waited for the food to be cooked. The chicken and lamb were cooked to perfection as was the rest of the meal, couldn't fault a thing. Popadoms,... More

My husband and i visited for the first time after it was recommended by a friend... we have gone back every couple of weeks since!! Their menu is absolutely delicious! So packed with flavour and variety, and we have tried a lot of their dishes and have not felt disappointed so far. We both really like Indian food, but the... More

Booked a table here when myself and a friend were returning from the MotoGP in France. We did find it hard to locate the restaurant, but it was well worth searching out! Very impressed with the food and friendliness of the manager. I had Onion Bhajee and Nirvana Chicken and they were both delicious. Excellent portion size too. I love... More

Visiting with colleagues I was expecting good things after reading reviews - and I wasn't disappointed. We were welcomed into the restaurant and attentively looked after. The range of dishes available was extremely wide but I settled on the lamb curry. It was very well prepared and exactly to my liking - colleagues had lamb and chicken. It was obviously... More

I've been here a few times, and have always had a good experience. There is a Gurkha regiment posted in the area, and they eat here, which is encouraging. Tidy and nicely appointed, you get a well ordered, military feel. There is a wide menu, and all of the offerings we've had have been wonderful. Getting the food takes a... More

This was a 'thank you' from some friends. The restaurant is tucked away in a 1960s-70s small shopping centre between Cheriton and Sandgate. Not easy to find, it is obviously a hidden treasure as the place was busy and a lot appeared to be regulars. A great many of the the dishes are familiar to lovers of Indian food -... More
