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.

We were looking for takeaway in Swaffham and spotted this new Indian. It is a restaurant as well as doing take away. The food was very good it was not full of oil as some Indians can be. The flavours were suttle nothing over powering. I will defiantly be going back.

This is a family run business with a small and pleasantly decorated restaurant. The food is enjoyable and excellent value for money. Friendly staff and very happy to have this as a local take away.

Love my local Indian, usually go every two weeks just two of us, but also with family and friends. The décor isn't brilliant but the food makes up for this. The staff are very friendly and hospitable and bend over backwards. The prices are reasonable, the only downside is the wine choice is lacking. If you want to book a... More

Fairly standard Asian fare served quickly by friendly staff at very reasonable prices. We actually prefer our food a lot more spicy than this but it is difficult for such outlets to get the balance right when serving a predominantly English clientelle. Well worth a visit for a quick reasonably priced meal.

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
