Being from Birmingham I can recognise a good curry house. the family here are from Birmingham and bother to go back weekly to get their excellent spices resulting in a lovely meal for all four of us.

Last night was a real treat: Gorgeous food served with Brummie humour and swiftly, to let us make the last train out of Machynlleth back to Aberystwyth. Perfect Peshwari naan Lamb that melted in the mouth Chicken madras with real chicken, not frozen chunks. Really beautiful and we were just sorry that we couldn't take our time. We have met... More

Very bland food. Obviously no sign of a real chief. We once ordered a take away and it took that long to cook, and there was no customers in the restaurant so why is it taking so long ??? It is the only Indian restaurant in Machynlleth. Avoid going.

Made to feel very welcome. The service was very good, especially as the restaurant was busy, with a very large and jolly party. The food was delicious - not over salted (or indeed sugared!) which meant the individual flavours could be properly savoured. Within our meal, a special mention is worth of the Tandoori Trout (delicious and beautifully cooked), and... More

never again terrible hostile and slow service I have never experienced such hostility in a dining environment before very shocked at the laid back attitude of serving a meal over an hour later than it was ordered , never again.

Unprofessional staff unable to cope with a large party, were told to hurry up and order, didn't want us to order starters!! The food was tasteless and not even hot. complete and utter farce when it came to paying for our meals! Won't be going back.

Although we were the only sit-down customers, we had an excellent meal with great service and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. To emphasise how good the food was, my wife is not a big fan of indian cuisine but thought the food was delicious. Would recommend the restaurant to everyone.

The decor of the restaurant is pleasant enough and the staff are very friendly, but the food lacked a little. Maybe it's just me, as I'm lucky to come from an area with so many great Indian restaurants, I just felt that with a decent chef this would be a top place to eat.

Friday night, we were the only diners.. it had been busier before the new electric decor, which has not really hit the mark for machynlleth. Food only average but has improved due to excessive over-salting in the past. Nan bread is however one of the best I've had! Also its pricey.

Standard Indian restaurant, the new decor makes the place feel much cleaner and we have never been disappointed with the curry in many years of visiting!
