Really good traditional curry house, in fact so good we visited here three times whilst on holiday. highly recommend the Chicken and Vegetable mixed Balti, this was seriously good, wife also enjoyed her usual Chicken tikka, Peshwari Naans also very good, service was good and very reasonably priced.

My husband and I are staying in Brixham celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and didn't know where to go. After visiting Torquay yesterday we came across this restaurant so agreed to try it out as we were finding it difficult to find somewhere special to go. The food was absolutely stunning and great service, so a lovely end to a... More

I ordered a home delivery. I didn't have to wait long and on opening and looking at the contents I could see why. My King prawn butterfly was over done. My chicken Biryani was tasteless. The veg. that came with it was like watered down potato. What a waste of £15. Never again!

On holiday we decided to pop in for a meal as it was near our hotel. The service was excellent and the food so good we went again later in the same week. It was the best tasting Indian we've ever had.

We waited to be seated which was fine as we hadn't booked. We were seated by a very young and timid waitress and then left with menus for around 30 minutes while staff just seemed to walk past and ignore us while taking orders of larger tables who had been seated after us. Eventually someone took our order just as... More

Says it all, really. Typical Indian restaurant food, but atypical service. We feel that it might have been because they were shortstaffed but leaving dirty dishes on the table for about 20 minutes is not acceptable. The service was slow and inattentive.

On a weekday night I was looking for a Indian restaurant in the area to visit with my sister. We had been past this restaurant many times and fancied trying it. However upon reading some reviews on TripAdvisor we were initially put off from visiting but decided to give it a try. Whilst we found the atmosphere lacking somewhat the... More
