After a previous rather disastrous visit we were persuaded to give this place another chance. This has taken almost five years so the staff all seemed to have changed and were attentive. The food was nice and a little different to a lot of Indian restaurants Beer seemed expensive though. We were seated under a huge air con unit and... More

This was our first visit to this Indian restaurant, the menu is totally different to one I have seen before, not a Bhuna or Madras in sight, although I'm sure they would cook one if asked! The dishes were very interesting but very good. My wife is not a great lover of Indian food in general but even she said... More

This was the first of the three restaurants we visited in Shanklin whilst working at The Isle of Wight Festival this year. I may be spoilt living near to Eastcote and Rayners Lane in North West London, but this place was a bit of a let down. Service was jocular and good natured but a little shambolic, but the food...

A wonderful calm atmosphere with happy helpful staff. The extensive menu offered a wide variety of curries, all reasonably priced, which more than satisfied the needs of our group. My Bombay Duck was fantastic! To be fair our group eat here every other month and we always have a great time!

We've been coming to the island for a couple of years now and each time we have a curry here. Always enjoyed in the past however although it was a nice curry we have had nicer meals here on previous occasions. Not sure if they're coping as they also now run a buffet restaurant over the road.

We were put at the table at the back by the bar and had the waiting staff leaning over us to get things from the bar without a word - seemed a bit odd. Not the most friendly or welcoming service - perhaps because it was a Saturday night. Things seemed a bit pricey for what they were and the... More

This Indian restaurant provides a wide range of tasty dishes in a pleasant environment with helpful staff who are keen to please. If you fancy a Indian meal you will not go far wrong in the restaurant or with a takeaway.

Visited the hotel late evening during my visit to isle of wight. Good location and close proximity to hotels n pubs on high street in shanklin. But the service and food was average. Dishes were oily n breads were ok. More expected in terms of taste and service.

There are few things that may annoy me at a restaurant. Here it were a few. Do not go for their dessert menu - it is all pre-fabricated unambitious stuff. The beverage prices are not well balanced - or how would you describe it when a small bottle of water costs as much as a brandy? The food and portion... More
