“Very bad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

I really love indian food and so does my partner, so we went to this restaurant while in kilkenny, based on the reviews, and i have to say it was very bad, menu was bad, my starter was very strange i cant think of the name of it, my partners starter was tasty though, the mains where very disappointing my partners was just packed with chilli and no other flavour to it, mine was just bland i would be used to loads of different flavours also the plates were dirty and had to mention it to get them changed yuck

“Nice food, not child friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

We ate here this week during a break in Kilkenny and the food was very tasty. It wasn't the most accommodating for little ones however. There was no children's menu and the waitress wasn't sure if we could get a half portion for our daughter. Overall it was lovely food however not sure we would return with young family.

“Probably the best Indian I've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Wonderful food, both myself and my husband love Indian and both agreed this was outstanding.
He got lamb, I got chicken, both wonderfully tender. Naan bread to die for and super tasty rice. Would recommend without a doubt.
Service was friendly and efficient.

“Great value Indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

We found this restaurant close to our accommodation while staying in Kilkenny. We had a lovely meal here. They serve traditional Indian curries, including vegetarian options, and they all come with a big basket of papadums and chutneys. The service was great and the prices very affordable.
