“Decent curry and service !!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Recently dined here with 5 works mate while in Lerwick and found the food of a fairly decent standard.There were no complaints from the guys, I had the mix pakora followed by the chicken Tikka Khari and was OK all around, To be honest ive had better but at the other end of the scale ive also had worse. Its a small cosy restaurant with a nice family feel and we were made to feel welcome by the staff here.

“good curry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Had a meal here with my partner, the staff were efficient, the food was well cooked and piping hot on arrival at the table. The pricing is reasonable, and I have been back since for another meal.

“Food and Service Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Delicious meal - lamb jalfrezi was the best I have tasted for a long time. Waiter was friendly and helful, warned me that the curry I had chosen was hot. However, at the end of the meal he complemented me on my stamina and suggested I should maybe try the Phaal the next time!!
Good value for money also.

“Poor curry house”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

2 hours to dine even though mid week and only 3 tables occupied. Asked for mint rathia and got a bowl of curdled yoghurt. When asked what that was got told they have microwaved it from frozen!
Will never go back!
