What a fantastic experience. Not only was the food, service and ambience fabulous.... My friend forgot her glasses and upon seeing she couldn't read the menu the waiter appeared with a box of reading glasses all wrapped and helped her select the appropriate pair - priceless!

Met friends in Oakham. All seasoned curry eaters. Earlier in day mentioned to someone our plan which was based on trip advisor, they said we would not be disappointed. How true! All had different dishes including the 7 chillies. That was great. All food was top drawer and staff were really friendly. Liked the way they dealt with taking your... More

After reading the very positive reviews, I expected more from this restaurant. Whilst the food was hot and fresh, the staff friendly, my first impression was it was more like a cafe than a restaurant. The ambience was missing. The food, in my opinion, was ok, but very overpriced, and not as good as the meals I am used to... More

Everything was excellent, food brilliant, staff always courteous and full of enthusiasm. Our only criticism is that the bill does not explain the service charge (10%) or show it on the final bill which causes embarrassment to both customer and restaurant. Sort that and it would be 5 rated.

without doubt the best Indian meal I have ever experienced. Excellent service and fabulous food. The restaurant is not licensed, so take your own drinks to this busy and atmospheric gem.

I am working in Oakham on a contract at the moment so I eat out every night - at least 2 nights a week here - but no more. My wife stayed with me on this occasion so we settled in looking forward to a nice Indian. She does not like it too hot so she ordered a mild curry.... More

Friday curry. Hadn't booked and restaurant looked busy. They found us a table without any fuss. The food was some of the best I've ever tasted. My husband had one of special dishes and that was really tasty. They only serve soft drinks but are more than happy for you to take your own alcohol. We'll definately visit again very... More

After our first visit here back in May, we came back to see if the high standards are being maintained - and right from the start, with welcoming handshakes from the staff, you can see that the people here aim to give good service. The restaurant is bright and cheery and the crisp tablecloths with quality tableware and decoration speaks... More
