“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Foods good but one thing I would say is...the staff seem to try so hard but dont actually achieve good customer service.

Not a fan of Indian but probably the best you will get in Portadown. Would recommend.

“So so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

The starters were average. I know Indian restaurants put their own slant on their food but the onion bhajees were disappointing & their meat samosas were bland.

The mains were ok. My lamb vindaloo was fine & the lamb was tender.

Service was initially poor. We were the first to arrive at the restaurant at 1800 & the place was empty but it still took over 15 mins for someone to take our drinks order. The staff appeared to give more time to customers coming in for takeaways. Later on I saw another customer get up & ask the waitress to take their order.

We were asked did we want poppadoms as we sat down. I asked were they complimentary (in some restaurants they are) & the waiter said he did not know!!!! We found them on our bill at £3. Drinks were also very expensive with 2 Cobra beer & 2 cokes at £14. In fact the whole dining experience was expensive with the bill coming in at £50 .

Overall, disappointing.
