“What went wrong?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

This was great the first few times we visited, just after it opened. Food good, obliging service, but what has happened since? A change of chef perhaps? On our penultimate visit the waiter told me that the chapati I had ordered was a very special chapati. (Call me cynical but I started to worry). My chapati arrived together with my husband's naan bread and both were really flat, greasy and doughy. We summised that they had been fried because they had not put the tandoori oven on. We told the waiter the breads were not good and he admitted that the oven had not been ready. Frankly I would rather be told the truth to start with.
We decided to give this restaurant another try because it was so good to start with. But sadly there was so much salt in the food we have not been back since. Here's hoping they get back on track again.

“best curry in the Costas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Been to several curry restaurants in the Costa Blanca but this must be the best so far. Good blend of spices and freshly made samosas. Excellent friendly service.
