Appalling. I have used this restaurant twice for take away and once for a sit down meal. Never ever again. Sauces tasted like they were out of a jar and the meat somewhat resembled pigeon or grouse when chicken was ordered at the restaurant. These visits were 3 years apart but never again!

I've never sat down and eaten inside the restaurant as it is painfully small but I have had several meals delivered to my house. The menu is very very expensive and to be perfectly honest I don't think that expense is warranted. The food is acceptable, but nothing special. Just a casual curry. Perhaps I would feel more inclined to... More

mains are £10+ sides £4. Food arrived and got sprayed by an air freshener, couldn't get the taste of smell off our pallets for ages, had to ask for door to be opened, wasn't offered any compensation. tables too small to fit all the plates on, and general decor is poor. music comes from a tinny TV in the corner....

Was pleasantly surprised by our takeaway as due to refurbishments ongoing at the Ventnor store the food actually came from their Sandown branch. Not a brilliant start with as my husband went to collect from the Ventnor store only to find it shut...anyway, the misunderstanding was sorted and the food was delivered to us free of charge. I did fear... More

We ordered a takeaway for 2 and I was very pleasantly surprised. Yummy and good value for money! Highly recommend to others looking for a good Indian takeaway as they are extremely rare on the island!

We shared a chicken tikka, dahl and rice. They do not have a Tandoor oven so chicken is cooked and served on a sizzling hot plate, still tasty especially with the dahl which had fresh herbs to complement the dish.

We had a takeaway and it was ok, nothing to shout out about but good basic indian cooking. My chicken tikka curry had 'normal' chicken in it which was a bit annoying, but apart from that, it was all ok. The wait was long for the food to be cooked, and it wasn't that cheap but as there are no... More
