“Lovely Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Went here for a meal with my hubby and best friend it was fantastic the food was cooked to perfection the taste buds sprung alive. Staff were so friendly and welcoming also. I first went to this little gem in 1991 it had not been open very long then so we gave it a try and it good then but now it is even bigger and better and raving from Basildon was well worth the trip. We all will most certainly go back but will not leave is quite so long. The lovely chap who came to make sure everything was alright he was so pleasant and chatty Great Night Great Company.xxx

“Best Indian restaurant around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Eaten at this restaurant regularly for at least 11 years, both as a couple and as a family group. Ok there was a dip in service recently but it is now back on track and the food is still unbeatable! Just had a refurb so they are certainly trying hard to improve. Keep up the good work!

“Akmed is back (previous Maneger)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

This Restaurant has been one of the top Indian in the surroundings of Essex for the past several years, last few months the service was hit and miss but the food has always been great. Last Saturday as we walked in we was greeted by Akmed the previous maneger who ran the restaurant for years shown us to our table taken our drinks order which arrived in seconds. Food order was taken starters came out from the kitchen without waiting and also we were asked if we are ready for a meal while our starter plates were being taken. Normally we waited hours for a starters to come out, that has shown a big difference !! We also got bailys and brandy from the managers compliments which we think was a nice touch!!! We love this Indian in Rayne and I also know Akmed will make this restaurant run smoother he is a little smoothie for front house ;-)

With the return of the competent front of house manager again after 6 months away we are hopefully going to see this great restaurant improve once again to what it was...we await and see....
