I specialize in eating Asian food....Poor service, average food. Can't say more than that! Got told a table a table will be ready for us shortly, 40 minutes later we sat down. Food came out 15 minutes apart as they forgot dishes, drinks got forgotten and charged for, moody waitress. Never again!

I live 10 miles from this Indian and I can't believe I've only now been. I can't honestly say it was the best Indian I have had yet! Amazing food, good staff and reasonable prices! If your in Newquay or visiting it's more than worth a visit! 10/10

Been to this restaurant a few times now, our experiences have been either good or bad, this time wasn't so good. I had a chicken dish which was very nice but my husband had a Lamb dish which he couldn't eat because it was too tough, it was not good quality Lamb and it was well over cooked. The staff... More
