The food is very nice without being anything exceptional, the service was great nothing too much trouble. Asked for the left overs to be put in a container to take home. Decent Indian but better places to eat like the zaika valley.

The staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful. The food flavour was spot on. However, like a few others, I found the chicken to be dry amid a very good sauce.

The starters were fine but the chicken in the mains was tough and dry, lots left in the dishes at the end. Not the best Indian I have eaten at to say the least!

The staff were not the happiest! The food was average at best. I’d recommend going into Chichester down the road for a better meal.

This is a small but well presented restaurant - with excellent staff and good menu choices. We had a super meal and were most impressed by all aspects of our visit. Thank you!
