When visiting Walmer we decided on a curry one evening and used Trip Advisor to find somewhere locally. Service was good . Curry was ok Chicken chilli tikka masala and chicken jalfrezi with some naan breads Portions a good size but meat was a little 'dry' so possibly cooked in advance and heated... read more

Would recommend this place for anyone looking for a nice curry on a Friday night (... or any other day of the week). Really generous portions. 4/5 because popadums tasted like they'd been cooked in old oil, otherwise all tasty. Will be back for sure.

I love to eat out and the Indian cuisine is my favourite. On the other hand my husband really doesn't, however, he will make an exception with this restaurant. Hubby is retired now but he was a chef by trade and felt he didn't need to check the 'opposition' because nobody was serving the sort of food which he produced.... More

Good curry without the frills... If you compare to any curry house this place you won't go wrong with...and no reaction the next day!

Went to this Indian for first time a few weeks prior with work colleagues. Went back with my Family early on a Friday evening. Was not too busy and the food was great. Reasonably priced. The restaurant itself is light/airy and clean. Nice spot on the seafront too. Parking was free and easy at the time we went. I'm told... More

Amazing food to eat in or take away. Great service and always looked after well. Prawn Persian Dansak is amazing!

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, 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.
