Excellent value for money

Fantastic food and excellent value for money. I would highly recommend a trip to this restaurant. The atmosphere is relaxed and calm and the tables are not crowded together, unlike some other restaurants in the local area. Great place to take the family and a welcome attitude to children.

We have had a takeaway from here and the service was excellent. The choices are very good and the food arrived promptly and was hot and very tasty. We have tried various Indian takeaways in the area and this is our favourite.

If you don't like curry but like mediocre stew eat here. If you like very mild curry with limited foreign flavour have the vindaloo. I can't believe this was recommended to me. Oh yeah totally overpriced too.

I was visiting some friends in Thanet and we had agreed on trying out the ali raj, upon entering I was welcomed by the most friendly staff who took care of me throughout the night. This was accompanied by the delightful food we received. All of these as well as a clean and refreshing atmosphere led to the perfect evening.... More
