I ordered: Flamin' Goan Chicken: Had a good gentle heat, lots of flavour and great texture, chicken on the dry side but the sauce was very tasty. Pilau Rice: Great colourful rice cooked just right. Jalfrezi: Lived up to it's 2 chilli rating, quite hot, good for those who can handle it, personally I found it too hot but wouldn't... More

We ordered a takeaway from here - when it was collected despite my order being read back to me they denied all knowledge of it which meant no food for our daughter- totally inflexible & rude The paratha was undercooked & soaked in oil - yet they claim to have won a healthly option award I could not recommend to...

Absolutely stunning food, reasonable prices and friendly staff. Only downside is they don't deliver.

The service was impeccable and the curry was fantastic! It's been a while since I've had a good curry and boy was this a good find! I heard about it in the South Wales Echo Food and Drinks Awards. With the open kitchen you can even see the chef cooking your food! Will definitely be coming back here again!

Lived by this takeaway for past year, but due to sign looking like a cheap kebab shop, we hadn't tried it until I saw it was rated no 1 in Ponty area on trip advisor. Was actually really good. Nice range of foods and some stuff that's a bit different! Highly recommended.

The only thing I dislike about this place is the fact they do not deliver. Truth be told though, I'd rather go down and collect than order anywhere else. Everything is always freshly made and even in the busiest times it never takes more than twenty minutes! I usually alternate between my usual lamb tikka biryani (unbelievably amazing!) and something... More
