Had a takeaway here and it was ok. The member of staff taking our order wasn't particularly friendly and didnt really say a lot. The food also took quite a long time to come. We also asked him for advice on a particular meal on how hot it was to which he replied 'not hot', his idea of hot was... read more

What an utter waste of money. Our starters - onion bhaji and prawn puree were dry and tasteless but knocked the socks off our truly revolting main courses which both tasted of burnt rubber - tho this didn't seem odd to the staff who didn't bat an eyelid when we complained. Never again.

We have been to the same restaurant for the last 3 years whilst on holiday. This time every aspect was terrible. The starter was bland and the main course tasted of burnt rubber.I am generally not a poster on Trip Advisor, but it wasso bad I thought I had better let everyone know

Good location over looking Quay. Staff quite friendly and this Shashlik is the biggest portion we've had at any Indian. Good price!

Even tho this place was almost empty - should've been a warning - we had to wait ages for luke warm food which was bland. The waiter was beyond rude and when we first asked for a table by the window he point blank refused and told us we could leave if we wanted! Had we known that there was... More

Great Curry just a pity the ambiance is not quite what you want. We presumed at some point the place was a Chinese restaurant as the decor was oriental. Great views over Oulton Broad.

Old and needs updating not overly welcoming, the sort of Indian restaurant I used to visit when I was younger because the pubs shut and you could carry on drinking after pub closing time!! As I've grown older and have a more discerning palate its all about the food and it was average. My son enjopyed his dopiaza, my Madras... More

Really beautiful location with views of the broads. Food was really good and was excellent value for money. The owner was a really good host who made us feel very welcome.

We couldn't work out if we were in a working mens club or a restaurant when we first arrived in the bar area. The welcome from the two guys behind the bar was non existent and after being asked to wait to be seated they disappeared. We gave up waiting, which was a shame as the restaurant itself looked really... More
