A favourite of ours. The staff went out of their way to make sure that we had space to accommodate a mobility aid. Clean and welcoming but all the hard surfaces make it somewhat noisy. That might have something to do with all the customers enjoying themselves! Some less common dishes on the menu, we went for some milder options... More

There seems to be a problem with Indian restaurants in this area, as we have not found one that meets expectations. We have been here a couple of times and this one is distinctly average - food okay but greasy, portions small, interior nice. Staff just go through the motions, with very little customer interest shown. Very robotic.

Despite my faith in TripAdvisor being dissolved, due to an ongoing issue, I just had to name and shame the WORST Indian Restaurant I have ever been to. The place looks nice, the place looks busy, the place looks modern and the place looks clean....oh, and the staff are pretty friendly too. Don't be fooled. The food here was disgusting.... More

I was dubious about stepping into this place; I used to live in Broadstairs and this place is not favoured by locals as much as a couple of other places but I found the food delicious, the service efficient and the atmosphere easy to be immersed in. There is a panoramic window so you can see and be seen. Keep... More

Ate here twice this week. Ambience really nice, service good and attentive. But only eat here if you don't really want a curry. Both times every dish had very little taste and certainly no heat. Am unsure whether they've heard about cooking with chilli as despite ordering the jalfrezi with a 2 x chilli rating it was very disappointing. My... More

Food was really tasty and reasonable value. An item was forgotten which we walked back for, so maybe count the containers before you leave? To be fair this happens occasionally with our home city take always, it's one of those things.

Quite large restaurant opposite Royal Albion Hotel. Convenient location. Fairly efficient staff. Food very good but not inexpensive. Service fairly quick. I recommend their red house wine. Nice desserts for kids.

Visited on a Friday evening at approx. 7.30 it was very hot and the place looked cool due to the air conditioning. The restaurant was busy but not full. Food was v good but service was slow especially when waiting for the bill - it took at least 25 minutes which whilst there was only two of us and we... More

Been looking at this restaurant for a while. Wish I hadn't bothered. Staff were nice, but the food was bland. The bread was dripping in oil. Yuck.!! Food came out really quickly. Too quick. Wonder what went in the microwave. Won't return.
