Always appreciated the care and attention to flavour and detail at this restaurant. Quality shouts out exceptional well thoughtout and fresh ingredients a true winner . Not your everyday mass produced Indian fare. Wonderful

Food is good. Staff are friendly and helpful and quite reasonably priced. Compare to the other India Restaurants it is certainly one of the better ones.

We went to paradise beach and it's awesome and peaceful. One should go in a nice weather. Rock beach is also good.

I think this one is just a personal thing because the other people in the party really enjoyed it, I just didn't like the food and I have eaten at many indian establishments before. The waiters were lovely though, couldn't fault them at all!

I have been to the restaraunt twice with my boyfriend, the service and food was fantastic! I have since taken my work collegues and they throughly enjoyed it. I was touched by the fact a memeber of staff recognised my face. This added to the lovely experience. I am now a regular customer!

this restaurant makes great claims about the quality of its food. I was disappointed.

We arrived as they opened so maybe that explained the very warm beer that was served, still no excuse though to be honest. The meat on the tandoori platter was dry and tough,... More

Innovative Indian fare, beautifully presented with decent sized portions. I had the lehsan khumbi pakora (stuffed mushroom) starter, and vegetable handi mahe (a dry Pakistani curry) for main. We didn't really need dessert, but chocolate samosas were too intriguing to pass up! The setting is also beautiful, in a converted police station (it's worth wandering downstairs to take a look...
