Staff need to enjoy their work

Dont know if we caught them on a bad night but not one member of staff appeared to be having a good time. We had to ask to order, and remind them to bring wine and food. That said when it did arrive it was very nice so well done to the chef as he saved the evening. Get a... read more

I have been here various times and never been disappointed until my recent visit. From the moment we arrived the staff were miserable. Normally you receive a friendly welcome as you would expect in any restaurant. However we were served by at least 3 of the 5 staff working that evening and not one of them cracked a smile or...

Was part of a group whilst staying at the nearby hotel. The hotel was not busy, but was not given a warm welcom either. Food was fine - nothing wrong with the quality of the food, but a shame the front of house let the place down. They messed up my order, and when questioned they pretended not to understand... More

I have ate in the restaurant many times and each time has been delicious. The staff are very friendly and the food is excellent value for money! I regularly use the take away service and that is always delivered promptly and the food is impeccable. I will continue to eat here on a regular basis!

We were staying in the Holiday Inn and fancied eating out without having to drive anywhere. The hotel is very near to the marina, with quite a few nice restaurants to choose from. We hadn't booked but they found us a table and made us feel very welcome. We ordered our food and tucked into poppadoms and pickles. Starters were... More

This place is not what it seems. It doesn't look fancy from the outside but the food is the best Indian food I've ever had in my life! The chicken was cooked to perfection; the sauce was beautiful and the service was amazing. This place earns an easy-five-star for its food.
