Great food, iffy service

The food here is lovely. The service is good until it gets busy and then you are easily forgotten amongst all the new food and drink orders.

Although the band new deco after the recent redecoration looks mire like a pizza restaurant than an indian. Dont be put off. It is advisable to book a table as this restaurant is very busy.

The revamped restaurant is no improvement. Whilst the food was OK it took so long to arrive. It wasn't busy and there were times when nobody in the entire restaurant had any food in front of them. Drinks are expensive and it is 'cash only'. Ridiculous.

Whilst on a long weekend away with the family we decided on having a take away from here. After calling the order in and turning up 40mins later to collect it as required we had to wait a further hour before it was ready. Once we got it home several dishes were missing, the food had very little taste and... More

We ate here while visiting Machynlleth. Whew ere able to get attention able without booking, it was during the week so quiet. The staff were friendly. Standard indian restaurant menu was available. Food was brough fairly quickly. The food was ok. Price was average as well. If you're feeling for an Indian in the area, this is ok.

Food was OK but a little slow to arrive, both soft drinks flat as pancakes, Service was slow but we were both very impressed with the volume of the waiters burps. Whilst stood looking out of the window he managed two spectacular belches that would have made Homer Simpson proud! We were only traveling through Wales and feel sorry for... More
