I've been here quite a few times, for family dinner/lunches, for a dinner date or two with my partner, and takeaways too, I just can't get enough! The staff are absolutely lovely and the food is amazing, has to be the best Indian restaurant I've been too, and there's 3 of them here!

I found this restaurant by chance since it wasn't far from my hotel. Situated in the centre of Blenheim it is not difficult to find. For those used to Indian restaurants in the UK this will be a familiar experience with all the usual favourites on the menu. I visited on a weekday evening so it wasn't too busy. Welcome... More

This is a great little restaurant in the heart of Blenheim. Roger - the owner also runs cooking classes and you can buy ingredients in a small store inside. Great for take aways too if you are visiting.

Warm, inviting and very nice and that's just the staff. Had a great night in neat surroundings with a plentiful and tasty meal.

My husband and I went out for a quick meal and enjoyed everything we ate. A few interesting variations on the menu (I loved the butter prawns). We didn't bring our son on this occasion but the kids menu looked pretty good. Only flaw was that our meals were put in the same box separated by the rice. Even though... More

I have been eating here for several years now. The food is awesome. I am vegetarian and have tried every veg dish on the menu. They are all yum. The food here is always superb and served with a smile. I have eaten Indian overseas in quite a few different places but this is my number 1. Also you must... More

The food was fantastic but the service was very slow. We were early so think some wait staff weren't there but when we sat down we were then left so long we went to the bar to order drinks. We never got the chance to order a second drink.

Located right in the middle of Blenheim, hard to miss. Nice atmosphere and good selection of beverages. More important though is the selection of authentic Indian dishes. Full of flavour, great quality for money. Will go back there as often as possible.

The food was the highlight for me; the very best Sag Paneer I have ever tasted, and good naan to go with, and quality craft beers too. The service was a bit hit-and-miss, there weren't enough staff front of house when we first arrived and we were given a rather peremptory greeting, plus were were told to sit at a... More

Consistently the best Indian in town. Have tried all three and compared numerous times and have never been disappointed!
