Nice restaurant & friendly welcoming staff. Complimentary poppadoms & dips divine but main course curries not great. Korma very salty, tikka masala a bit plain. Probably wouldn't go back

This is definitely an "authentic Indian cuisine" our food was full of flavours and was very nice. Service was experienced and friendly. Restaurant was busy and had a very good atmosphere. Definitely try this restaurant for authentic Indian cuisine. Will definitely be heading back, best Indian in Cork!

This is not an "authentic Indian restaurant". The meal was very average, the waitress was efficient,keen (and perhaps overworked) but was clueless about the menu and the cuisine. Our order took over 45 minutes to be served and the excuse was they were understaffed. Visit this place, if you have a lot of time and just want something spicy -... More

Friendly, efficient staff and very appetising food. Did not have to wait long for courses and never had to call a member of staff as they checked up on the table regularly even though it was busy, which I appreciated.

Food was good, massive portion but all spoilt by very sad and rude waiters who kept ignoring us all dinner long. I will never come back there because the atmosphere of the place is really putting me off.

Very poor food. Irish girl was polite but Asian Female was very rude. We ordered chicken tikka & it came out in 3 minutes "It was like Chicken Curry Slopped on Plate & Soggy". Bhajis were edible. Mains Arrived with big chunks of Tomatoes which means they saved main ingredient. Save your money and go somewhere else. What a waste... More

Arrived after 10 after a long stint at work. Service was pretty good and the food was excellent. Very tasty with a good kick of spiced. If you do like your curry tasty with a bit of a kick you can't go wrong
