“Excellent, authentic Indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Generally eat here when visiting friends living in Kendal. Food is always very good although the service can vary somewhat. We go for the consistently high standard of cuisine.

“Best Indian in Kendal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Eat here regularly and always have a great meal. Staff are friendly and attentive. Wednesday night special is particularly good value. Only thing I could complain about is that it is sometimes cold in the restaurant on winter evenings.

“Absolutely atrocious”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We had a takeaway from this restaurant and it was hands down the worst we have ever had. The naan breads were very thick and stodgy, and also burnt. The garlic chicken was flavourless and swimming in grease, and the meat was rubbery. The chicken balti tasted like bolognaise. I ordered a saag paneer which was just a lump of cooked spinach with melted cheddar cheese on top - this is not paneer! It didn't even have a sauce. The only things that tasted ok we're the korma and coconut rice but they were still only average. What a waste of money, will definitely not be returning.
