My son took his girlfriend here for a date night with his hard earned pay packet after being here with us previously. They were sat at a really tiny table not big enough for two and asked to be moved, which they were. They then...ordered meat samosas and momo’s. They received one meat and the rest were vegetable although the momo were nice. They then ordered two chicken tikka bhunas but received normal chicken ones. They weren’t made to feel like paying customers and came home very disappointed to what they had received when going with adults. Such a shame they weren’t well received.More

A birthday treat for my daughter. From start to finish great service, friendly staff and the food was delicious. Added to our experience was a “happy birthday” song and desert served to my daughter. Will definitely be frequenting this restaurant a lot more in future.

Don't be put off by the not very appealing location in the railway station car park. Nice atmosphere, good service and delicious food all at a reasonable price.

2 times out of 3 of ordering food from here, the orders were extremely late and the food cold. The last time we were continuously lied to about when the food would be delivered, only to discover after about 2 hours it hadn’t even been...collected by the delivery driver. I gave the owners the opportunity to correct their poor performance and they chose not to. 1 star is being generous.More

The food was delicious and very flavoursome, we ordered Lamb Hariyali, Gurkha Mis Mas, Aloo Gobi, Pilau Rice, Keema Naan and Cheese & Garlic Naan. The Naans were the nearest in flavour and texture to the ones we’ve been eating in Goa for years. I...also had a Mango Lassi which was beautiful. Will definitely be returning and highly recommend. As a bonus it is right outside the train station, so we didn’t even need to drive, boom 👊💥💯More
