One of the worst indian meals I have ever had! Wafer thin popadoms! Dreadful onion chutney! Tasteless! The worst lamb korai I've had in my life.. The meat certainly wasn't lamb! Tasted nothing like it! Service dreadful.. Restaurant customers took a back seat to take away customers!! The takeaways took priority without a shadow of doubt! One of the worst... More

I nearly did not bother because of the bad reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised by our take away. Ready on time and tasty. My son and mother-in-law even called it the best curry ever. Not cheap though, but I would definitely order form them again.

Went here recently and had a fantastic meal, the food is great. But sadly we had to wait for an hour to get our food!! The food was so good though we didn't mind so much!

Booked a table on Saturday night as every where else was booked. Now I know why! Sat down at 7pm food came to table at 8.20. Take aways were flying out though. When food arrived it was bland and lacked spices. Will avoid on future visit to Abersoch which is a shame as the only Indian restaurant it should be... More

Having ventured into the worst Indian reseraunt in Wales more than once I really should know better. Authentic it is not, patacks in a jar not an ounce of spice used , all the meals look the same and are tasteless, menu sounds fab it's just a total disappointment....and expensive

Try and avoid this place and if you do end up eating there be sure to check your bill. Bottled water charged at £4.50, table bookings are not honoured, service terrible. Stroppy staff, witnessed a number of arguments about the bill so our bill experience seems to be routine. Such a shame, Abersoch let down by this disgusting poorly operated... More

Casual Sunday evening meal after setting our tent up nearby. The waiter was really friendly and helpful, but he was busy trying to manage on his own. We were the third table to sit in and there was a few takeaway orders being made. The food was lacking flavour and a bit disappointing really. We had a set meal for... More
