Was visiting Royal Tunbridge Wells with some friends and read the reviews for this Indian and thought we would give it a try. The waiters were very attentive and we were served quickly. The food was delicious but the lamb was a bit chewy. Overall a really enjoyable meal and glad we gave this restuarant a go. If we are... More

Had a lovely takeaway meal from here, really tasty. Piping hot still when I got it home. They also do loyalty cards. One for every £10 spent and when you have four you get £5 off your meal.

Fantastic meal, great service and very nice no frills restaurant. Went with my oldest son and had a really good "boys night" - not rowdy though; very well behaved. Will definitely be back!

A family gathering of seventeen people meet for dinner on a Saturday evening. Ages from four to seventies. It's not the largest of restaurants but they coped so well in arranging the tables/seating and providing good food that everyone enjoyed tremendously. Service was friendly and well organised so that no-one had to wait for an overlong time.

The staff were really attentive, friendly and welcoming despite the restaurant being full and multiple takeaway orders being done. With it being our first visit they were also incredibly helpful in helping us choose what to order... More
