Good meal, well cooked. Attentive staff but not intrusive. I have been to Indian restaurants where the portions are larger, but the quality isn't the level of this place. I will definitely be returning.

Visited on a whim for some food as my partner and I have found in our experience Indian restaurants are extremely accommodating of our dietary requirements. Not the case here at all. The waiter tried to convince us that there was only 'a little bit' of dairy in ghee and in yoghurt after stating we were vegan. We really did... More

Lovely Food. if you happen to book a early table or arive before 7.30pm expect to be given a window table (to attract other customers in) and be gawped at whilst you eat. 3 different people attended our service quite confusing as the older guy had little grasp of English and kept repeating what we said. Best curry in a... More

We had stopped in Bournemouth for a few days and wandered around looking for an evening meal, as this place was near our hotel we gave it a try. The most miserable staff ever! We were the only people in as it was just 6pm, the food was good but the atmosphere was awful. We felt rushed, for example ,... More

We ve eaten here 3 times now and this third time was a little bit disappointing. Me and my husband were so looking forward to a fab curry as usual in this restaurant but sadly it must have been an off day. Service was fine, waiter was friendly, poppudoms were soft , I had to ask for mint sauce as... More

Very nice atmosphere and food at the normal Indian food pricing. Very pleased with this place. Me and my girlfriend also found a fantastic nearby car park at St Paul's Lane, BH8 8AJ!

Four of us chose this place after being let down by another restaurant in the same street. The staff working here were really warm and friendly with good advice on their menu. It's a good spot in a prominent position and with comfortable seating and a good sized entrance. The manager even gave us a local taxi company loyalty card... More

With a central location in Old Christchurch Road, this is a great Indian restaurant with an upmarket style. They have a small cart park at the back but it was full when we went there and parking is then a challenge. The food is great, even if the service is a little slow. Busy on a Friday night so best...
