“Authentic Indian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Great tasting food well presented. Staff attentive but not overly so. Very busy so advisable to book even mid week. Always return when visiting Tavistock.

“Small but delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Booked a table at short notice on a Saturday evening, it was very busy when we arrived, but the staff were attentive and friendly. The food was delicious and plentiful. A very good place for families. Hope we go back some time.

“Top Quality Indian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Fantastic quality, authentic Indian food. Very busy which is always a good sign. Nice varied menu with great specials and the staff were really nice. Best place to eat in Tavistock by far.

“It's traditional”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

If you like your Indians traditional and not all fancy-dan and modern, this is the place for you. Great menu, well priced, good food and service. Indian music and interesting India-themed decor. The takeaway service was busy too, even though there was a takeaway-only Indian immediately opposite.

“Good food but......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

This is a restaurant that would benefit from a major makeover in terms of decor and service, but the food itself is on the whole good, if a little in the traditional style of Indian food-lots of sauce masking the fresh and delicate flavours of the spice combinations. The restaurant is very traditional in its decor, dark and a little shabby, with tables very close together, in a sort of corridor arrangement. The staff are efficient but bored, and just seem to be going through the motions. That being said, the owner is always very friendly, but appears to be somewhat exasperated by his young staff! I would recommend a take away, as if a large group arrives, as happened whilst we were there last time, it can become very noisy and uncomfortable.
