“Enjoyable meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

The building is very old and has a good oldie touch with open beams etc. It has nice seating areas with good quality table linen. Comfortable chairs and a lounge area with leather sofas. We went on a Monday evening and it was very quiet but I must say the service was very good. Food served about the right time, very polite and well looked after. We enjoyed our meal and probably feel it was reasonably priced for an Indian restaurant ( the menu and prices are on their web site) we would recommend

“How much?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

I can not fault the quality of the food served up here, and the menu is vast. BUT... it is extremely expensive for the tiny portions that are served up.I have been to many Indians around and there are lots of very high quality at a much more reasonable price. and to be honest the waiting staff are a lot to be desired, quite abrupt and wouldn't engage in small talk. The restaurant was empty so it wasn't that they were rushed off their feed. We all agreed we would not be going back again.

“Good Quality Meal - but more expensive than I thought for Diss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

My wife & I went here after not being able to get seated in Thatchers Needle, we were able to get a table with no issues on a weekday around 18:00.

The service was good, the food was better than I last visited and the atmophere was good considering the age of the building .....

We had a 2 starters , 2 mains and some sides with a couple of drinks and the bill came to just over £50.00.... which i do think was rather high for Diss.

As i have said the aulity of the food was rather good, so that was acceptable for the cost - I have read other reviews which have indicated the food not to be acceptable, so i could understand others being unhappy and low scoring their experience.

My only real niggle on the experience is due to the nature and age of the building, the ventilation or extraction is not great. This means you will be putting your clothes in the washing machine after you have visited as the aroma of the food follow you.

We will visit again before christmas.
