Lovely food, friendly staff, great service

Visited whilst on holiday in Budleigh Salterton. Undecided as to whether to go after reading a couple of negative comments but we found they were totally unjustified. On arrival we were greeted and shown to a table by a really friendly cheery chap who chatted to us about being on holiday and... read more

Indian is my favourite food and I can eat it everyday, so always wary of trying somewhere new incase it doesn't live up to my expectation. We stayed in Budleigh Salterton for the weekend and couldn't go 3 days without an Indian, it's in the where to eat guide so thought we'd give it a go. The staff are lovely... More

Wanted a change so ventured away from our usual curry house and drove to Budleigh to eat at their local restaurant. We've eaten at many Indian restaurants in the UK, from Inverness, London and Devon and ate here a year or so ago. We came back as we remembered, the food and service was great. The waiter was friendly and... More

We visited this restaurant on a quiet sunday evening and we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. In fact we doubled checked the bill because it seemed too cheap. The service was attentive and friendly. Overall I would definitely recommend a visit here.

This used to be a nice wee restaurant, but it's clearly had a change of ownership where they are out to make as much money by cramming as many people as they can into the space. This means there's not enough room for the waiters to move around the tables, people queuing for take away are crammed in beside the... More

A delightful almost hidden treasure on the jurrasic coast. The Taj Muhal of Budleigh Salterton near Exmouth provided delictable indian cuisine accompanied by warm and friendly service. Added bonus is it's a 30 second walk to the beach. Will definately endeavour to visit again.
