Was pleasantly surprised by our takeaway as due to refurbishments ongoing at the Ventnor store the food actually came from their Sandown branch. Not a brilliant start with as my husband went to collect from the Ventnor store only to find it shut...anyway, the misunderstanding was sorted and the food was delivered to us free of charge. I did fear... More

We called in on our way back to Shanklin for last night meal. Folk were drinking, so I think licence has been fixed. Food was great!

We ordered a takeaway for 2 and I was very pleasantly surprised. Yummy and good value for money! Highly recommend to others looking for a good Indian takeaway as they are extremely rare on the island!

We shared a chicken tikka, dahl and rice. They do not have a Tandoor oven so chicken is cooked and served on a sizzling hot plate, still tasty especially with the dahl which had fresh herbs to complement the dish.

We had a takeaway and it was ok, nothing to shout out about but good basic indian cooking. My chicken tikka curry had 'normal' chicken in it which was a bit annoying, but apart from that, it was all ok. The wait was long for the food to be cooked, and it wasn't that cheap but as there are no... More

We needed a curry so were pleased to find the restaurant.Although quite basic decor-the menu and food provided good choice.Overall worth a visit if you need a curry on the west of the wight!

Ordered a takeaway costing £30+ and had the greasiest most unappetising meal ever, bhajees dripping in fat, king prawns tasting like old shoes, and the rice was hardly cooked. When we cleared the plates they were swirling in oily fatty circles. Never again !

Being new to the area and only staying a couple of days we were dubious about trying an Indian restaurant we didn't know. However we needn't have worried, it was an absolutely wonderful meal. The restaurant is small and cosy, spotlessly clean, and prettily laid tables. The waitress and owner were very pleasant and welcoming. The food was perfectly cooked... More
