Had a great meal here. One of the best indians I have had anywhere. Service was excellent and the salads were a lot better than you normally get.

Slow Service. Give you drinks then do not take order for ages. Overpriced. Even charge you over £2 for the dips with poppadoms. Nothing like a real Indian Restaurant more like a McDonalds inside. We left and went to a Real Indian Restaurant across the road.

We were in Torquay for a few days to celebrate our 20th anniversary the place looks and is nice. We were told it was a bouquet night with a starter main and side for 12.95, good value we thought. My husband ordered special curry but was told it was 2.50 extra for king prawns, we didn't mind that until it... More

First visit, went in without realising there is an "eat as much as you want" buffet. This is £10.95 per person and was really good. A wide selection of dishes all fresh looking and appetising. You can't go wrong but just be careful about what you drink as drinks are pricey and this is obviously how they recoup the loss... More

Second visit, service was a little slower than the 1st visit (which we appreciated as it was far too quick last time) & friendly, food was amazing.....would definitely recommend this place & will be our first port of call next time we are in Torquay. Large selection of food and drinks, clean and lovely atmosphere to the place.

Went here tonight for a curry. Excellent friendly service, and the food was of the very highest quality. Could not fault it except maybe a little more mint with the dips. Staff all attentive as well.

Prices might be cheap but not even worth it! The food is disgusting and service is so poor, took over 1.5 hours for food & it was cold. Staff are so rude. Please avoid this place, save your money & go somewhere else!!!!!

Lovely relaxed setting, and I have to say the best Vegetable Korma, and Pilau Rice I have ever had. Waiters were very good, and we always enjoyed our times there.

I intended to order through Just Eat but one of the dishes we required wasn't on the menu, so I phoned to order. On Just Eat, our order was £51.50 plus £1 delivery but over the phone I was told it was £54.55. When I queried whether delivery was more the chap on the phone said it was free, so... More
