Bad service, too cheeky. Food could be much better for their prices. Felt a bit uncomfortable there, very empty. Didn't connect with the staff. Wont be back.

I have been visiting and enjoying Indian restaurantsfor over 40 years but never have I had such a bad meal.My partner for her main course ordered a lamb madras. She took one bite and exclaimed that it was much too hot and she could not eat it. Being a getleman I exchanged dishes with her and although I really enjoy... More

This restaurant used to be a run down and shabby pub. I has been re vamped to an extent, but is clean and tidy. The food was a great surprise it was freshly prepared and very tasty with wonderful aromas. They were kind and attentive and did not mind our popping in in our 'scruffies'..as we had been gardening!

Just come back from having lunch at this relatively new restaurant in Purewell Christchurch. The food was excellent and the restaurant it self is intimate inside but has room in the garden for the children to play if needed. It has a funtion room for 20 if a small party is needed. They have white linen table cloths and napkins... More

Went into Spice Quay for a spontaneous visit on a Tuesday Night and was introduced to the Banquet Night which was a 3 course meal for £11.95. Excellent Value very generous portion sizes and great to share. Really good customer service as well. This is now our favorite Indian Restaurant.

The appearance from the outside is deceptive as inside it is very nicely laid out and well lit. Service was great, good value for money and well presented. I felt my veg rogan could have had more flavour but the range of veg was good, though the crinkle cut carrot was odd! Other mains were very good indeed and all... More

This recently opened Indian Restaurant is a real pleasure. The menu is different and offers interesting varaitions of the 'old favourites', tastey, well prepared and presented by attentive and helpful staff. Other positives include a spacious layout, the owner has not 'jammed' the tables wall-to-wall so you feel in your own space without being excluded from the restaurant atmosphere. This... More

Service should have been good, we were the only two in there on a Friday evening. Food was good, a few different items on the menu, service attentive. Atmosphere was hard to judge, given the lack of other diners. Would go back again.
