Absolutely fantastic food! There was nothing that we could fault at this restaurant. Food was extremely tasty and plenty of it. Base Camp curry was to die for! The owner was was brilliant at explaining the dishes and showed real enthusiasm when talking about the food. Very relaxed atmosphere. Well worth a try

It was quiet on the night we visited, which was surprising as the quality of the meal was very high. Would recommend, even though it just looks like a takeaway from the outside. Try the coconut rice!!

Used TripAdvisor to find a good restaurant whilst in Paignton. We weren't disappointed. Friendly staff, the chef/owner even popped out to say hello. Good food and size of portions. Think we over ordered. Very impressive.

Just good food. Walked in and very 80s look. Great food in a laid back venue. Had the base camp curry. If in area again will be back.

Party of 16 celebrated a friend's birthday last Friday. Drinks and individual orders taken promptly by friendly waiter. "Tabs" set up for each couple's bills which made for ease of payment at end of evening. We decided not to have starters. In view of size of party and variety of choices ordered, waiter suggested poppadoms and dips for those who... More
