We asked our hotel receptionist where to get a curry and she mentioned two restaurants. We liked the look of The Coriander and at the end of the meal we were glad we chose it. Friendly staff, lots of lovely food - perfect.

We visited the coriander as its now call while on holiday this year. We have been every year for the last four years. Again when we went it was the night of the Shanklin Carnival, the restaurant was very busy. The food came quickly and was very good. The only disappointment was when we asked to see the desert menu... More

The restaurant opens @ 17.00. However when my group turned up @ 17.00 the waiter was eating his dinner and suggested we go to the restaurant over the road... So we did.

Now changed to 'the Corriander' this was once a great place to eat. Slightly new decor but service was poor, wait time was long, seemingly understaffed and food less sharp and contemporary as when called 'purple mango'. Staff still friendly.

We were on the island visiting friends and were looking for somewhere different to eat. This place popped out of nowhere and was one of the best Indian restaurants I have been to. The food was great, the atmosphere and decor is very chilled, the staff are friendly, the prices are reasonable and the menu is full of great Indian... More
