Went to this place for dinner, greeted nicely and made to feel welcome! Asked if wanted poppadoms and how many straight away. Ordered sparkling water got still sigh. That was the only down side as the food was well served and tasted great. Nice place would go there again

I liked the restaurant. The decor was good, the food was excellent and the portions were big. But why was it necessary for three of the waiters to ask within five minutes of each other whether the food was ok? I bought a bottle of wine and ascertained that I could take it back to the hotel if I didn't... More

We popped in without booking and we greeted politely and offered a good sized table, not a small one usually given to 2 diners at some restaurants. The menu was extensive and well prices as was the wine. The waiter offered us to taste as we at first couldn't decide. The food and service were faultless and would definitely return... More

Always tried to up sell, The cheese nan was rubbish and the rice portions tiny,. I asked for Dansak not too spicy and it came out spicy as hell. I think they did it so I would buy more drinks. The rice portions were tiny. Popadoms and my girlfriend had a nice but extremely spicy meal. Staff too pushy and... More

I had a half tandoori chicken and a small vegetable curry. At £10.25, delivery was free as I am in a 2 mile radius.. Food quality was excellent with extras include.

Pavel serves excellent food. We arrived late on Saturday night. We passed twee restaurants that said it was too late to serve us but then we saw Pavel. When we asked the staff they let us come in and advised on what would be a good balance of flavours and dishes to eat. The food was brilliant - not heavy... More

Dropped in late one night. They were near enough to closing but stayed open for us. Good enough service (although were forgotten once despite place being empty). Plenty of variety in menu and food was good enough. Kind of place that is say does well out of takeaway business but not sure of how well it does from restaurant side.... More

Love to try a new Indian dining experience whenever I visit somewhere new, and although I've been to Brighton before it was decades ago. Here for Unison delegate conference. We stumbled around looking for an Indian last night and ended up somewhere rated highly but with a very limited menu that didn't cater for all tastes, so left again. Tonight... More
