Lovely food

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the hotel owners that we were in but with some misgivings given some of the reviews here. However, I can say that we had excellent customer service from the time that we booked & the food was great. We were quite a large part of 9 but they managed... read more

Me and my sister came here for dinner. One of the best mixed grills I have had. All the food was great and the guys working were outstanding. Thank you

Food OK but unexceptional. Staff humourless and unsmiling. Message was clear: eat, pay, go forth and multiply off.

Not even been on the table for a min, the waiter told us it is a busy night, please order now immediately twice without even handing over a full menu. Felt a sense of racism because we were indian bodies. Never again!! Would not at all recommend!!! Ruined our lovely Easter break..

Lovely food, good service and nice atmosphere. Also try the sister restaurant in East Cowes. I expect it is just as good!

The food was pleasant but the service was lacking to say the least. Food and cutlery was 'plonked' on the table rather than served. The above fades to insignificance though compared to the way the bill was presented. They started off by giving us the wrong bill. Once they brought the right bill it was incorrect. To make matters worse... More

Bland and non authentic food, pathia was sweet and nothing else, was not asked how my meal was during the meal or when table cleared. Three dishes tasted the same. It's not cheap or even reasonably priced - expensive and rubbish. I love a good curry, the food here is not authentic, engaging or challenging in any way. Sloppy attitude... More
