“excellent and above all expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

it was our second time visiting torquay and even though we were staying at a hotel the other side of torquay we got a taxi to this fantastic restaurant.

the service here is outstanding
the food is fantastic we have never tasted naan breads so fresh and delicious
the welcome you recieve is wonderful and if its your birthday they even sing to you and bring you a cake and candles which i found out thanks to my husband.

a restaurant not to be missed,and to add it is very reasonably priced

“Great food - indifferent service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

A group of 13 of us visited on a Tuesday Special night (£9.50/head for a starter, main & naan or rice). The staff moved other people to accommodate us which was nice (not im sure for the other people!) but after that it was a bit of a nightmare as it took nearly 2 hours to complete the meal

When we got the food, most of it was great but the wait from ordering to receiving the starter and then the wait from then to the main was unbearable and we nearly did all walk out as it became a bit of a joke. It was a shame as the food was very good apart from one curry that was luke warm - I mentioned this to the waiter when getting the bill hoping for an apology of some kind or a reduction in the bill but neither came - all he indicated was that there were a lot of us and they had done their best to get us in!

“Wonderful Food - Lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

If your looking for excellent food and friendly staff this is the place. We were on holiday in Babbacombe and ordered a takeaway, they promptly delivered it to our cottage along with a few little extra nibbles and beer.

Highly recommended, one of the best meals of the week and reasonably priced.
