We arrived in the middle of an immense storm, soaked and frozen. The food is delicious and the staff are accommodating and friendly. Be aware they don't have a liquor license, so BYO.

For a good Indian, look no further. Bring your own beer / wine is a plus, the popadoms and pickles are some of the best and mains are reasonably priced and well made. Helpful, happy staff will top off a great evening.

The first time we ate here, we were very impressed. Sadly, the food seems to have deteriorated - most likely a different chef - my meal seemed to be swimming in canned tomatoes! On the plus side, the staff were very helpful and very friendly.

From the outside it dosnt look amazing, but the inside tells another story, fantastic food, served by polite waiters, who take time to talk and be friendly. you really can't ask for more, and definitely will go back when we are down next year. Lino Len

We had a good meal and the waiters were really good. Not only did they serve us well but a really good conversation to. It's a small place but well worth a visit. Food had good flavours.

Staying nearby we decided to have dinner at Little India and it was wonderful. A lovely welcome from the staff and a really pleasant restaurant. There was an excellent choice on the menu and when the food arrived it was delicious. We will definitely be visiting again when we are next in Penzance.

We thought we'd try Little India as we had been going to the Taj Mahal just down the road for many years but recent experience had not been good. Unfortunately although service was good the food was below average. I like to have some ginger in my curry and so ordered a dish containing this. There was none. Sadly it... More

We were recommended by friends to come here and were not disappointed. Large range of different dishes and not expensive. They do not have a licence so you can just go into the little supermarket opposite and buy your own beer or wine.

Been here as regulars in the past until it went through a change of ownership. Decided to try again as our usual favourite Indian was closed for holidays. Oh dear, regret it. Only ones on arrival in spite of booking. Waiter looked like he'd been told deportation was imminent. Sullen. My shamee kebab was a salty version of a supermarket... More
