I had the lamb naga because they said it was spicy (I like it hot). They weren't joking. Pleasantly surprised. Will definitely be back.

Ok curry house, very attentive & polite staff & reasonably priced. Tarka Dahl a bit on the sour side and whilst overall food quality certainly passed muster it’s not exactly what you’d call upmarket. Though very clean & tidy the decor is more reflective of café than a restaurant. Would have liked a bigger selection of appetizers to go with... More

We were staying in west cliff due to a family bereavement so did not want to wander too far. We were a little put off at first as it seemed not that busy. But for £100 five of us had pops a drink and a curry that was really good. Would highly recommend, in fact I would say it is... More

Crowded but we were fit in without a reservation. Did the 3 course menu which was way too much food. Only complaint is that only one of us at the table wanted the 3 course menu but it was all or none on the order. Everything was delicious but much more food than we needed. Wanted to order the biryani... More

I would recommend this restaurant. I had one of the special chicken tikka dishes (unfortunately I have forgotten the name of it, the dish included ginger), the food was very tasty with a great blend of spices. The service was good.
