We were recommended here by the pub we were staying at. Nicely laid out inside with comfy chairs. Drinks arrived quickly, poppadum's soon after. My colleague had chicken Balti, I had veggie madras. Both were very tasty, the madras was quite hot, but not as hot as ive had before, which was nice as I could taste all the vegetables,... More

Fatty, tough lamb, too much oil. Really not great. All I can say is that the good people of Eastleigh are easily pleased! Will not return.

Delicious food beautifully presented served by friendly helpful staff. I particularly enjoyed the green herb chicken tikka (with green chilli and mint) starter, and the suka salmon (made with tamarind, cinnamon and lime sauce) main course. The draught Cobra was excellent, and there was a selection of wines to choose from should you prefer it. Their popadoms were perfect.

Ate here for 1st time as usual haunt had afire and was closed. A really good choice on the menu. The service was a little slow but that can also be good. The food arrived as expected in a timely manner. Good portion sizes, well presented.
