Very welcoming

As a single day I strolled into Shanklin looking for a nice Indian restaurant for myself and my two kids (5 & 9). After being rudely told there was no room at another restaurant down the road the welcome we got here couldn't have been nicer. All the waiters were very attentive and were great with... read more

Have minimum order of £16.95 per person which is for a town like shanklin just doesnt make sense. Curry we ordered was just overwhelmingly sweet and service by staff wasnt anything to shout about.

One of the best Indian foods I had during my visit to the UK. Prices were a bit steep as compared to other places but the food was worth every bit of it :) I have actually recommended it to a lot of my friends visiting the IOW

Visited while on holiday at the recommendation of the B and B we stayed in. The food was OK, nothing special, just a normal curry. Waitress was a bit slow and scatty and tried to over charge us but this was rectified straight away. Quite pricey but I tend to think Indian cuisine is. Maybe worth a visit.

Been here a couple of times now. Like everywhere else in Shanklin, it's not the cheapest, but the food was very enjoyable and the service excellent. Different spices to Indian restaurants from home, but we liked, a lot!
