The restaurant is dark and dingey, with old, dated furniture. The food itself was average, but edible.

We ordered a takeaway from here, the starters we got we literally swimming in oil and grease, we were spooning out the grease and throwing it away! I then started eating my vegetable korma and found a lump of chicken!! I've been veggie all my life so this was a horrific experience. We where camping at the time with no... More

Curry so hot it hurts to eat it but somehow tasteless at the same time. Seemingly the curries are made with frozen diced veg and extra extra (extra?) strong chili powder as the only two ingredients. Maybe that's unfair, they probably added a bit of veg oil. Also, my son noticed they only have a good hygiene rating of 1... More

It was the worst experience of my curry eating life. The mint sauce was a pot of tasteless watered down yoghurt. The chicken pakora was just pieces of chicken breast that had been battered and had no taste to them at all. The currys were full of grease and the chicken tikka madras tasted of chilli powder and had no... More

We enjoyed a nice meal here whilst staying in Pennal. Not as good as London Indian restaurants but still good.

Good service, beautiful décor and nice atmosphere. The food was good and the rice and sauce came in serving dishes, which would be great when sharing between different people. I did think they provided a little too much sauce, and having a low tolerance for spicy foods I had to leave some of it, though it was tasty. Perfectly cooked... More

Ate there whilst away on business. Nice food, and not over priced. The only downside is, at the time they did not accept card payments - only cash or cheque.

Ate with family a group of 7. The food was hot and we didn't have to wait long. All the dishes were well cooked but lacked a bit of spice and seasoning. The service was ok, but I did watch one of the waiters ignore a couple at the counter waiting to order a takeaway, because he was busy chatting... More
