Only me in when I arrived, service is good, Curry magic and the nan bread was one of the best I have had! Would have achieved full stars if the heating was on but I was warm when finished :)

Throughly enjoyed a meal at this restraunt while on the Isle of Man visiting family. Don't be put off by the exterior or entrance. Behind them is a great gastronomic experience of some of the finest indian food I have eaten. We dined at 8pm and were glad we had booked before as the restaraunt was full. The staff were... More

There are a few curry houses on the island and this one is pretty good. I ordered the onion bhaji and a lamb bhuna. The onion bhaji had a little fennel in the mixture. Some people like it but unfortunately I don't because it tastes like blackjack or aniseed. The Lamb Bhuna was good but it was a little too... More

Possibly the best korma I have ever tasted! All of the food was fantastic, the staff were very pleasant, the prices were mid range, the only downside is the fact that access is via a mountain of steps so anyone with mobility problem would struggle but I would certainly recommend it and will definitely visit again.

Taste of India as a sit in restaurant is normally very good and the food is excellent. However their delivery service last night was utterly appalling. We placed an order at 8:20 PM. By 10:10 PM there was no sign of any food so I attempted to ring and find out what the delay was. I spent the next 20... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and the food did not disappoint. Really excellent well spiced food. Surroundings are pretty ordinary though.

On the island for the Manx GP and fancied an Indian meal one evening. The manager and staff are very pleasant here and serve some lovely dishes. Be sure to book at busy times as this restaurant is very popular, and for good reason.

We really like this restaurant. It went through a slightly wobbly patch a couple of years ago (didn't have a licence), but it's back up to standard now and is licenced. The food is excellent, with some unusual dishes. We live in Manchester and this would be a good restaurant in Rusholme (or Brick Lane). We always go to the... More
