Food: There was a little bit of a wait for the main course, considering it wasn't particularly busy, but the food made up for it. Got the chicken makhani, which was really nice with the perfect level of spice. The cheese naan was okay, but sort of tasted like they'd used the mildest cheddar possible. Service: There seemed to be... More

Service is so slow. Drink served one at a time. 16oz glasses single shot of vodka top to the top with flat coke. Pint of cobra beer the head was spooned out so the barman could top it up. Take away orders being taken over the phone in Ended up walking out after waiting a hour & still no food.... More

What a shame about the bad reviews! We had a group on meal and were very impressed with both the find and the service. The restaurant is huge - far too big really as it spoils the atmosphere and makes the place look empty and unpopular - shame. I will def visit again

Have visited several times prior to going to an Exeter City FC evening match. Food is always delicious and arrives pretty quickly, which is good as we are always tied for time. Very good value

Very slow service to say there were only 2 other tables occupied, waitress seemed to have never waitresssed before, didn't listen to our order correctly, had to come back and check things even though she had apparently written it down and then calculated the bill wrong at the end...disappointing experience for otherwise tasty food.

Suggest trying the kadai, ask them to make it a bit more spicy. Great staff always helpful in your choice. Good prices. Good location for after a film.

we had read the reviews but were having trouble finding another indian restaurant so went there anyway. It seems to be one of those places that has a big vat of sauce no matter what you order and the dishes were very sweet. Always telling when it is empty on a saturday night at 8pm
