“Great Indian Food - Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Had a meal at this unique Indian Restaurant in Petworth. The restaurant is situated in cellars beneath the road. The menu has some specials that are different to the 'usual' indian restaurant menu. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We ordered a selection of different dishes all of which were fresh, warm and very tasty. The prices are good value.

“Atmosphere with excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

The food and service is excellent. The presentation is superb, the flavours are to die for and the attention to detail fantastic. Its also great value for money, as Indian food lovers we believe this restauarant is best value (drink and food) against surrounding areas such as Storrington, Pulborough, Horsham, Southwater, Washington, Ashington etc (we live in West chiltington). The staff are so lovely and always look after us remembering the little things we like as a family and as a couple. Cant speak highly enough of them.

“Almost perfect...very highly recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011 via mobile

Having sampled many Indian restaurants this comes out top.
The hospitality was 1st class.
Time to order, advise on menu, specialised care spot on.
Friendly & professional.
Dishes were specialised with secret recipes and recommendations made.
I have never tasted such good tikka Massalla.
The birthday cake & candle was a great surprise & a free drink on the house unheard of these days.
Very friendly.
Will definitely return.

“Well priced varied menu, try the non-staple offerings.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

I have been eating at this place for years. Time after time it is consistent with some great options on menu like its apricot and lamb curry. The food is made quickly but does not feel like it has been sat in jars or pots all day waiting to be reheated. We normally order and collect food instead of eating in - the restaurant is underground with low arched ceilings with light white painted brick. The staff are friendly and very helpful with making choices.
