“Good food but we felt like we were intruders”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

The food ended up being quite good, but the waiter questioned everything that we ordered (and we eat Indian a lot), was kind of rude and off-putting, and we got the general feeling that he was doing us a favor by serving us. To tell you the truth, I believe that the owner might have been the person taking the order, which made it even worse. We also had the problem of having to ask for water multiple times. One other suggestion, it looked as if there were possibly gardens at the back side of the restaurant, but the curtains were pulled on that side. Instead, they had the windows open to the gravel parking lot with the sun blazing in on us. You have a good chef who can make tasty Indian food, why not give your clients the service they deserve?

“waste of india”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Waiter was very rude, was behaving as though he was doing a great service by taking our orders. The nan was really thick and unedible , can be used as a cushion though.
The dishes were oily and tasted bad. The decor is depressing and the very cold.
There is nothing Indian about this place and the price is steep for the cheap quality of food they serve.
Visited this place last december and have reviewed it on google a lot times , but the review gets taken down.
I wouldn't recommend this pace to anyone , you are better of munching a bucket of chicken at KFC than eat the oily horrendous stuff they call curry here.. Never visiting this place again.

“Average meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Ordered a take away from the restaurant in Kyleakin - even after the waiter reading back my order on the phone they only had half of it prepared when we arrived to collect. Very strange. Waited 20 mins for the missed meals to be prepared and meanwhile our other dishes were kept warm. You can imagine what this did to our nan breads!
The meals were good but not the best Indian meal I've had. Actually thought the meals were over-spiced- the veg jalfrezi was so hot it was almost inedible!
Also throught it would have been a nice touch to have added some free items (e.g popadums or bhajis) to apologise for the error with our order.
Wee bit disappointed.

“An absolute disgrace to Indian food!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

The wait staff was terrible, they were rude and un-welcoming. we had to wait for 15 mins before we were served dinner and had to wait for water which was requested for the minute we sat down until the end of our meals. We ordered Butter Chicken and we were thoroughly disappointed with what we were served. The chicken was extremely chewy, the curry was yellow and tasted like yellow dal mixed with coconut added with loads of sweetener. The butter naan wasn't exactly naan, it was roti with butter. The Palak paneer was terrible and to add to this terrible experience we were not served with the complete order and had to cancel the remaining order as we were finished eating that dreadful meal. The waiter instead of apologising for their incompetence, was extremely rude and said "so are you done with your meal now?"

I would not recommend anyone to go to this restaurant, specially if you know what Indian food is supposed to taste like.
