How refreshing to go to an Indian restaurant and not have tried all the dishes on the menu!! I had a delicious king prawn dish with spinach and garlic. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely return again.

Well, with this Indian Restaurant I have some mixed views, Food= this is OKish, not the best food I have had, as they have advertise it does not seen to be this way, the food all seems to taste the same, this can be they are using the same masala mix, the shish kebabs are the worst one I have...

Had a take away recently. Went for the Tava Chicken and the Chicken Chaat. Food looked good. The Tava chicken was listed as medium but I found it not as tasty a bit bland and watery. The rice was well cooked and the chicken chaat had flavor but it was just ok. Not sure I will want to repeat this... More

Great food, very authentic and tasty, in fact the best Indian I have had in Exeter for a long time....but the service was slow due to lack of staff, although they were very attentive when they did deal with us. Would recommend the food though and will be coming back again!

Three of us had the £11.95 three course special and it was frankly too much excellent food to finish ! The service was fine. The décor is innovative and unusual as is the food, and although there was a minor mix-up with final bill, this was sorted out with no fuss at all. The one thing we really all agreed... More

Advertised a discount on website but told not valid anymore! It was very expensive in the end and to be we won't be ordering again which is a shame. Why do these people forget what good looks like after a while, probably ordered over a dozen takeaways over last 12 months but lost my business after last couple of orders.... More

We want to the pukka Indian last night with friends and what an amazing experience . The food, the service, the atmosphere, everything is amazing. Just ask for the hot towels at the end!! A great way to end the meal. I live in wellington and travel every Saturday to get my takeaway.
