The food here is nice, the service was very good, the decor is a bit dated,the naan bread provided was delicious and in huge portions. We had an nice meal here but it isn't to the same standard set in Havalli in Douglas.

They are kind and helpful. The food is simply amazing!! Garlic Naan bread!! It practically melts in your mouth! I kid you not. The portions are quite large! You will not go away hungry. They spice your order to your preference. I highly recommend this restaurant. I hope to go back some day.

Had a meal here last night with a friend. Lovely decor and very comfortable. Staff are very professional and service was very fast. Food really authentic and good selection of dishes. Left the restaurant feeling extremely full as portions are generous. Would definitely go back there next time in cork

Authentic and tasty Indian food and atmosphere - either for take-away of for a dinner inside. Quiet as well and not necessarily a booking needed :)

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 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.
