Never had a bad meal here in 30 years. Best Indian Restaurant around this part of the world. Food is always very tasty, service quick and friendly. Atmosphere is relaxing and very personal, we have always felt and been made especially welcome. If I was rich I would eat here everyday!

Did a take out and was let down by the food, the daal was powder and tasted like cardboard. The rest of the food was tasteless, certainly a let down to curry especially with a good position

Came here with friends recently and the food was delicious. I had a Balti chicken tikka pathia methi recommended by Shabbul the manager which was cooked to perfection! The service was also very good and welcoming.

I have been using this as my 'local' Indian restaurant since moving to the Swale area some 12 years ago. Food and service always top notch. The only slight problem is the restaurant is very small and can get a bit cramped, but never uncomfortably. Recommended.

We have been to many many indian restaurants and this is by far the best in whole of kent. The food is cooked to perfection and the taste is so lush we go here weekly with our extra pennies we find. If you enjoy a good atmosphere and tasty food this is the perfect.
