The lack of sauce and the answer from the owner to the customer wanting more sauce were exactly what convinced me to try it! So we've just finished a take away from here and it was absolutely delicious! We had four different mains, a... More

Definitely one of the better restaurants in the area! We went on the off chance having visited friends in Lymington, restaurant was busy for a Monday night but the food came out quick and was piping hot. Service was exceptional, the young lady behind the bar was very helpful! Will return.

We had a takeaway recently and promised to return for a meal in the restaurant. Best decision this year as the food was even better than we remembered. Perfectly cooked and delivered piping hot. Service and atmosphere was very good also. Our 18 year old Grandson said it was the best Indian meal he has eaten and it will be... More
