“Best Indian take a way by far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Whenever we eat Indian, my family always choose the same dishes, so our comparisons are genuine, the portion sizes are good (my wife and I often share and there is still plenty), although a little on the expensive side you get what you pay for. Brilliant food

“Best curry in Tavistock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Having moved to Devon from Bradford, Yorks, we were not expecting much to rival the curry cuisine of the north of England. We were pleasantly surprised to find this little takeaway, and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a taste of the Indian subcontinent. The food is freshly prepared, with excellent flavour and the chef's specials are definitely the way to go.

Very suitable too for those who don't particularly like the hottest of foods, as in addition to the standard Madras, Vindaloo etc they prepare a number of dishes without the chilli and peppers which can be overdone in other establishments.

“Always good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We are regulars and love the food. The food is freshly prepared and the staff always work so hard.
They recently did a party order for us for 30 people and everyone was very impressed.
Really want to support a small business like this.
