Had a wonderful three course meal for two (myself and Mum) and two glasses of wine each, £55 Bargain. The food was all very tasty, freshly prepared and well presented. Complimentary poppadum's while we waited. Didn't book. Not too busy. Got there just before 8pm and left at 10pm which is when they close, though we hadn't realised this so... More

We ate here at lunchtime on a day trip to Aber. There is a lunchtime all you can eat buffet (changes daily apparently) for £8.95. The food was really good, slightly spicier than the norm. The dishes were varied with noticeably different spicings and flavours. Only one minor criticism - it would have been nice to have the dishes labelled... More

While on holiday, this restaurant/takeaway was recommended to me. Our party of three opted for a takeaway. The food was great with two minor criticisms. The naan bread was burnt on one side and a couple of pieces of chicken were with gristle. I have to say my pahtia was fantastic with the perfect balance of sweet and spice and... More

just ordered takeaway which cost £11:50 delivered, food nice but only 2 bits of meat in curry, no rice either as I assumed that came with curry, onion bhajis nice but but I didn't think the 2 samosas were worth £2:50, salad was great and fresh and plenty of it, lack of meat in curry let it down, would use...

Hi Rob, Thank you for taking your time to review our delivery service. We are glad that you enjoyed the majority of the food but are terribly sorry about the meat curry - we usually put 10-12 pieces of meat in our curries, so we will definitely be looking into this. We hope to have you order from us again... More

Nothing was too much trouble for the attentive and friendly staff and we all loved our food. The vegan in our group appreciated their knowledge of what he could choose from on the menu and enjoyed a tasty vegetable Bhona and the vegetarian who swapped meat for cauliflower in her mild curry with pineapple. Will go there again! Toilets clean... More
