Great location and ambience.Sid was taking care of all the guests. The starters, side dishes and main courses all have the authentic taste of India. The cooks are from the Garhwal region of India. Thanks to Sid for bringing to his guests, the original chutney recipes from his mum.

The restaurant itself looks luxurious because of the tasteful decoration, the staff was friendly, the food was good. I tried the prawns tandoori, with masala sauce, tasted a litle bit too sweet, but didn't really got together with the prawns. Altough, I liked them both :) maybe next time I'll take one of the vegetarian chicken or the veggie-styled meals.... More

Having seen this in the top 3 on TripAdvisor we thought we would see for ourselves how good it was. And I'm glad we did. A great setting, an even better curry, and the staff lovely. Highly recommended if your looking for a good curry in the area

Another good meal here. We booked in advance, just to be on the safe side, but we would have got a table anyway. Our fish and chicken choices were very well cooked, and the chicken meat was of very good quality. The restaurant will adjust the heat of any dish you order, although mine was still too mild. I spiced... More

We ate in this restaurant twice during our stay and enjoyed both meals immensely. The staff are very friendly and informative and will guide you through the menu if required.sometimes the maderian cusine can be a bit bland so the flavours here are much appreciated.

This restaurant was recommended to us but I was really disappointed. Waited ages in between courses and was melted by the heat. I had an extra hot chicken madras. It was pleasant enough but had no real kick to it unlike Namastes Indian restaurant. Now your talking. That's where to go for a real Indian curry
