Small restaurant/cafe. Excellent authentic food with a fresh spiced flavour somewhat different to the norm. Friendly young staff and good value for money. Will definitely go on a regular basis. Recommended.

Decent Asian food at a reasonable price.

Fairly standard Asian fare served quickly by friendly staff at very reasonable prices.

This restaurant fails to reach the standards I am used to in Greater London, the ingredients seem inferior and I suspect that a lack of competition allows the restaurant to get away with a standard it might not elsewhere.It could be my taste for veggie food but Indian restaurants are usually good at those dishes and i find this one...

Enjoyable trip to local Indian while staying isn Swaffham. Restaurant is small-is but was completely empty when we were there. I get the impression it's more of a takeway joint for the locals. Decor is loud and dated but shouldn't put you off. We were told it was the best Indian in the Swaffham area, and I wouldn't be surprised... More

First day back at work yesterday after the long summer holiday so we spoilt ourselves with a take away from here for tea. As always what we had was first class. I'm very fussy when it comes to the quality of meat but I have never been disappointed with the quality of chicken and lamb from here. The dishes are... More

I went to this restaurant with my fiancee and another couple. Personally after reading the reviews on this site can't believe I was eating in the same restaurant! The eating area was untidy and cold. The waiter couldn't understand English hardly at all. He had no knowledge of what was on the menu. The poppadoms brought out were slightly stale... More

Situated in an "off the beaten track" position (50 metres from the market square. This restaurant and takeaway is nevertheless well worth a visit. Try to ignore the fact that this is not the smartest eatery and focus on the excellent service and well cooked food at a reasonable price.
