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

We had a takeawy from here on the August Bank Holiday weekend, and it wasn't very good at all. The food was very greasy and the chicken in the chicken jalfraisi that I ordered was of very poor quality. I'm afraid I could not recommend having a take away meal from this establishment.

We went before 7 o'clock on the Saturday of the August Bank holiday and the restaurant was really busy even so early. The staff managed to find us a table for two without a reservation. However it took over half an hour to get drinks which we had to order twice. The food was excellent with generous but not overwhelming... More

The title sums it up really. The interior is like walking back into the 1970's, a 1970's Bedouin tent to be precise. The place desperately needs updating. However, back to the food. Shown to our table and left with some nicely laminated menus. Left for a fairly considerable length of time before being asked for a drinks order. Drinks arrived,... More

My family and I were starving so at the time being narrow sighted rushed in for what we thought would be a Exquisite meal . Only when we sat down and settled did... More

After ordering, our soft drinks arrived and the cola was flat and cheap. During the meal we found what looked like a plastic bristle from a basting brush in the rice, we complained and was told we could have a replacement to which we declined. Then we found what appeared to be a red strand from an onion sack in... More
