Went to Great Yarmouth for the weekend recently and was pleased to see that this restaurant had reopened. We arrived at around 8pm and the place was buzzing we were not sure that we should have booked but the waiter quickly found us a table. Prices are very reasonable and the chicken tikka starter we had arrived promptly and was... More

What a great place for food. Although they didn't have the wine we wanted and the service was a bit to keen to clear up the food was fantastic. The food was one of the nicest we have had for a long time. The chicken melted in the mouth and my partner said the lamb was perfect. Waiter too keen... More

Delighted that our favourite Indian has reopened (longest roof repair in history lol!) And even more delighted that the food & service was excellent as always. Celebrating our 30th anniversary we certainly picked the right place to go!

Good quality Indian food with a good selection and number of speciality dishes. Reasonably priced and good atmosphere with attentive waiters. Worth a visit.

This had been a good restaurant, but every aspect has declined. We were the only people in the place but the welcome and service were below expectations, including a pint of beer served when a half pint was ordered. This makes me think that they are trying to drive up the amount of money you spend. The onion bahgi (sorry... More

The name of the restaurant did not really sell the place I gave it a shot. I'm really pleased I did, food was amazing. Well priced and the chef's specialists a delight. The food was well presented and the restaurant clean though the carpet could do with a jet wash. Would I eat there again? O yes 😎
