They were dismissive and unhelpful with the complaint... More

Awful. Probably one of the worst places I've ever visited. We ordered food for 7pm but our food didn't arrive until 9.15pm....disastrous. When our food did arrive we had 3 chips and 4 naan breads missing, when we enquired we were told the kitchen was "too busy" and told to "remind" the waiter when he gave us the bill to... More

We are visiting from australia and I can quite honestly say it's the best Indian I've ever tasted. The atmosphere was perfect, the service was excellent and the food was so tasty, good size portions and great value. Highly recommended!

Visited once when passing through Ebbw Vale. The restaurant is clean well laid out and the staff were very attentive. The meals 4 of us had were tasty and the portions were good. It has a fair priced impressive menu and non of us were disappointed. It is definatly a place to visit again
