Best Indian takeaway in Paignton. Moved to Devon last December and have had some awful Indian takeaways, we were wondering if we would ever find a decent one. We have! The food arrived at the time we requested, it was piping hot and full of flavour. Plenty of meat in the curry's. Would highly recommend.

Our takeaway just arrived. We had two curries and pilou rice. The rice was fine but both curries were lacking meat!!! 5 small dried up pieces is NOT acceptable.

Whilst staying in the area we picked up a takeaway...the onion Bhajis were tasty n crispy but we were somewhat diassapointed with the curries...too much sauce and very little chicken! The chicken Massala balti was a bit tasteless and not like the usual balti I would have...but overall was good but don't think we'd go again!

Food is okay but nothing special in my opinion the staff are attentive but out of 8 people everyone said they had better elsewhere especially just down the road

We had a takeaway from here at the weekend. As usual, lovely food and all really tasty. 4 different starters, curries, side dishes and naan breads... really reasonable prices. we usually make the curries last for 2 meals - bargain! would definitely recommend

We had a lovely meal the chef came out to enquire if we were enjoying the meal. Nice touch. Prices were surprisingly cheap. Nothing about our experience eating here could be faulted. When we come to Paignton next May we will be returning.

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
