We ordered our to be delivered takaway food for 2 as celebration of exam results. Sadly, it would have been quicker to walk as it took well over 1hr for food to arrive ( we had to phone to chase) & we live less than 10mins walk away! Food was just 'ok' & not particularly hot & given it was... More

We tried this restaurant on Saturday night, although my friend had had 2 not very nice takeaways we thought we would give it a try. The food was very tasty and served very well. The only thing I would say was that there did not appear to be a lot of chicken in my dish and not a lot of... More

We had a delicious meal - the food was excellent and really tasty. However, unfortunately the member of staff who was waiting on our table was very unfriendly, and quite rude really. Never cracked a smile, dumped the cutlery down on the table, didn't know which dishes were which when he served them, and seemed to spend more time on... More

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 up Good meal worth visiting if you...

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
