A good resource

We have visited a few times, and find it very nice to have nearby. Food is good, traditional stuff, with no surprises. Service is friendly and helpful, though it is fair to say focus seems to be on takeaway. Which is odd as the restaurant is very pleasant and decorated in modern seaside shades... read more

Service is friendly and helpful, though it is fair to say focus seems to be on takeaway. Which is odd as the restaurant is very pleasant and decorated in modern seaside shades, which makes for a good ambience.

am local and have visited on several occasions as it is convenient, but I do think for anyone visiting our lovely town of Deal and looking for places to eat, it would be fair to comment that this is very average. The service is not as high as you would normally get in an Indian restaurant and the food is... More

Had a meal with friends on 17th Jan. Food was excellent but we had to wait quite a while for it. Seemed to be more interest in takeaway s. Would definitely eat there again as the food and service eventually was good.

We have visited this establishment on numerous occasions over the past 3 years & hed wonderful food & service every time. The staff are polite & attentive...even remembering us from previous visits months before! Would recommend to anyone, we have taken our 3 yr old grand-daughter to eat there! Get there early week-end evenings.

I ate here last night and found the food really nice and the service was also good. I like the style of the restaurant and its very welcoming to have a sit down meal. The portion sizes were quite good. I would eat here again when I'm next down

We arrived here looking to have a Saturday night curry. We had to wait 10 minutes for a table even though there were a few empty tables. There only appeared to be 2 members of staff on duty and were running round trying to take phone orders and serve diners. We were given menus and asked if we wanted popudum... More

The best Indian takeaway I've had in the area. Admittedly I don't have them every week but this was just delicious. A half hour wait in the restaurant was well worth it. Staff really friendly. The restaurant was packed so always a good sign too

The food was good and portion sizes healthy. Went on a Friday night and the takeaway was clearly popular. The staff seemed a little uncomfortable although the service was prompt and efficient. Enjoyed our evening here.
