We'd heard good things about it and got a last minute table on a Saturday night. The service was ok but the staff were rushed and quite abrupt. The food was average but the lamb madras was horrible. Watery and just hot.... no real flavour, just hot. The waiter did ask what was wrong as we hadn't eaten it and... More

Really good unique taste. Always good when I go down there and service is prompt. I've been to a few in Bristol but this really has to be the winner. If you want a good curry that hits the spot then this is the place!

I ordered enough take away for about 30 people ( one day in advance) for a birthday party. The food was ready on time, included a gift of two bottles of wine, and within 20 mins all that was left was a little rice and a few spoonfuls of ctm sauce! Outstanding and all our guests were impressed. Have been... More

Luckily this place is open late and we were able to pop in after the rugby. The service is prompt. My adrak was a great curry, the chaps I was with enjoyed theirs too.

Fine dining Restaurant with a contemporary, comfortable and elegant look. Fully Air conditioned accompanied with attentive service combined with a wide selection of authentic Indian dishes. We have won a few awards in the past including a 5 star MasterChef Award, Diamond Diners 5 Start International Award (Undercover Judge who came to the restaurant as a customer and then awarded us 5 Stars!). We are also on Facebook and Twitter. So please go online and support us! But, come down and try our curry first - you won't be disappointed!
