Freezing restaurant, pleasant Indian food

I visited mid week with some friends. The restaurant was ABSOLUTELY FREEZING! At first I couldn't even take my coat off. I also used the toilet on the premises which was even colder - not nice when you have to undress! Poppadoms were tasty and we enjoyed the dips that came with. I had the... read more

uRGENT! Please do not use your cards in this place, they seem to write your card details on the back of the order pad, and simply make out they scribble them out and throw them in the bin. We caught onto this and when we confronted them they admit try copy but throw them in the bin. We got out... More

I had a great meal here with a group of friends and we all thought that the evening was great. Really good meals across a range of spiciness and good portions to satisfy hungry appetites. Drinks are as expensive as they are in all Indian restaurants but no problem asking for a jug of tap water. The food is reasonably... More

Been here once and the food was very tasty and value for money. The atmosphere is a bit lacking but you make your own atmosphere and entertainment

I have been to many Indian restaurants over the years and have had some fantastic experiences but also some very average ones. Having read some of the reviews on here I was a little unsure what to expect but even though the restaurant was very busy, the waiters were attentive and the food arrived quickly and was excellent. I would... More

Having read some of the reviews I was slightly worried about ordering however it was a perfectly good curry. We had a take away, when delivered it was hot and well cooked. No complaints.

As an indian food lover. I was pleasantly surprised by the very good food at this restaurant. The ingredients tasted very fresh. My husbands drink was flat so without hesitation the staff quickly changed it. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant on the last day of the famous festival - Cowes Week. The food was well over priced and probably, we would have never gone there if it wasn't because of the busy day. Like any other normal person, we took between 5-10 minutes to decide what we want for food. The manager/supervisor... More

Wish we had read the reviews on here before choosing this curry house, as we probably would have avoided it. As it was, we first went into the Bahar Tandoori but found the decor outdated and no one came to seat us straight away. Wish we had just stayed there instead! Anyway, first question we asked the head waiter was... More
