This is a clean, bright and comfortable restaurant. The staff were polite and helpful. The range of dishes great. The service quick but best of all, the food was absolutely delicious! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in Durham who is looking for a tasty, well-prepared Indian meal in pleasant surroundings.

I often don't bother to go out to Indian restaurants, they feel a bit too familiar, a bit like fish and chips, not special. This one is very good with a wide range of dishes and quite a few featuring fish and duck, so not just the standards. It all tasted very good and the service was friendly and efficient.... More

I visited this restaurant with my family after a graduation ceremony. As you can imagine we were not alone. All credit to the staff, our meals were hot and tasty and well served in good time. We didn't wait to long for our food and neither were we rushed. All our drinks arrived correctly and within an acceptable waiting time.... More

I visited this restaurant as I was in the area on business. First impressions were good smart decent sized restaurant. The food I chose was not that adventurous as it was chicken chat starter and chicken korai main. Whilst the food was decent the service was appalling. Other than serving my meals and taking away my starter I did not... More

This is a large restaurant with a stylish, smart and well cared for interior. The service is prompt and the food is nicely presented and tastes authentic. We have since returned and found the food was consistent.
