Booked a table here for my boyfriends birthday after it was recommended by our B&B. The waiter seemed quite rude, and after asking if the curry portions were big enough to share between two (as they sometimes are in Indian restaurants) we were told we were not allowed to only order one and share. We were then told we had... More

Bustling Indian restaurant with lovely food and quick service. Friendly owner. No deserts so he gave us free coffee instead!

Having smelled the delicious aromas coming from this restaurant even our young lads who have never been to an Indian restaurant wanted to give this place a try! We visited tonight and had a fabulous meal with very good service - two young converts to Indian cuisine!

Dropped in on a Saturday night and they were really helpful and accommodated a group of 7. The food was very nice and the service equally good. If I'm back in Bowness I'd come back.

We're visiting the lakes for a few days and thought we'd give this restaurant a try and it was brilliant! We sat downstairs and still received excellent service although the main seating area is upstairs. The food was really lovely, staff were so friendly! We even had our popadom dips topped up without even asking and were offered coffee on... More
