Being a vegetarian I think Indian is the best take away the flavour of each dish is sooooo delicious. This is the second take away we have had in the last month and each time we enjoy something new! The paneer dishes are to die for, paneer mahkani my fave so far. The special fried rice with cashews and sultanas... More

My wife and I went on a short trip to Newquay for a break away. Arriving at our hotel a little later than expected we didn't want to travel to far before we found someplace to eat and this place was right next to our hotel. As we walked in we were told to take a seat as it would... More

Received very poor service. Was waiting at the takeaway desk. And was told very rudely to move away from the menu on the desk to another part of the restaurant. Didn't even make an order as I walked out with a very bitter service! Would never go back!!

We opted for a take away with home delivery. The food is always superb, ordering by phone was swift and efficient and delivery remarkably quick. Very impressed with the service and the food. Many thanks!

Great food, it's a large place but the service was good, making it feel friendly and personal. I enjoyed my Chicken Chat starter, and the Lamb Bhuna was tender, and the rich spiky sauce very satisfying. All in all, a curry not quite up to Bradford level, but very close!

Clean, spacious restaurant, huge menu, excellent service and spices to die for. We were seated very quickly and served by quite possibly the busiest waiter I've ever seen. He appeared to take orders from every single table and never stopped moving all the time we were there. The servings were generous and neither of us could finish our main course.... More

Have had a few take-aways from here and the food is hot and tasty. It is worth booking in the restaurant and eating though and getting a window seat to enjoy the lovely sea view and a beautiful sunset!!
