Went out for dinner and once the food was ordered the waitress was so rude and preferred to talk to her friend then talk to us as the food came out cold! Then as we complained she got her back up and was really nasty. All the staff seemed to hide in the kitchen not caring... All of us 3... More

Ok, we have eaten a lot of Indian and I mean a LOT of Indian! Let me set the scene, we have received Xmas cards from an Indian restaurant owner!!!! True! The food here will absolutely BLOW your mind.

We had the kofta & Dahl & they were both fantastic. It was a phone order & we had no menu, the person on the phone was helpful & attentive. Perfect spice - a great find.

Been here a couple of times now service leaves a fair bit to be desired but it's well made up for with the food. Take a few friends as you really need to try a few dishes. Butter chicken is a must along with the coconut rice and roti. Very reasonably price will be back.

They must be on a tight budget as the staff were all teenagers with very little experience. They knew nothing of the menu, nothing of wine service or food service for that matter. The food was average, not great, no wow factor. Atmosphere - what atmosphere! Boring, dull, average is the best I can say. The staff did seem to... More

This is some of the best Indian food I have ever eaten and an awesome addition to Port. The service is very friendly and their floor manager is just lovely. The food is quite fresh and delicious! The only thing I could fault is the cleanliness of the surrounds, eg, glass, toilets, etc, however, the tables are quite clean. Other... More
