We had the very good value Tuesday special - almost any starter, main, rice or bread plus coffee for just £10.95. Coupled with BYO drinks with no corkage it makes for unbeatable value for money. Everything was fine but we both found the food bland, plenty of food colouring but not much in the way of spice. And we are... More

Our party of 8 visited on the evening of the annual Round the Island Race when Cowes is buzzing and restaurants are packed. The front of house couldn't get us in quick enough! The main restaurant area looked nice but we were taken upstairs to a room at the top of the building that they were trying to pack 12... More

Great food, really nice meal - but then got the bill which I calculated to be £50 and they pumped up to £75. The guy agreed immediately (too quick) that it was wrong and then attempted to re-submit a new price. I refused to pay as it was a Tuesday special and they were quoting the weekend menu. They accepted... More

Walked in off the street and were offered a table for two. The waiter was very unfriendly (bit worrying). Ordered a bottle of wine mainly based on the price as we were on a bit of a budget. Had an average meal nothing horrible but certainly nothing special! Asked for the bill which came to more than we thought. Added... More

The kids' Korma was great. My vindaloo was pants. When will Indian restaurants realise that potato is NOT an ingredient of vindaloo. Originally it was pork, vinegar and garlic from the Portuguese settlers. Lookup vinegar and garlic in Portuguese and you'll get Vindaloo. Not a bit of Aloo near it. Maybe they do it because they think it's Anglicised. Anyway,... More

I was stunned to be sat in a bland restaurant that served bland food with no spice involved and arrogant staff with the charisma of a sea sponge. I was further disappointed when some fellow guests arrived with a crate of cider and proceeded to open the crate in order to consume the stuff at the table beside us with... More

celebrating our 5th anniversary, we decided on a Sunday evening curry in our new home town. the food was ok but nothing special, my main lacked much meat or had far too much sauce!! generous portion of rice and a really well cooked Nan made the visit enjoyable enough but will try the other two Indians before we go back.

We ordered the vegetarian meal for 2 and the normal meal for 2 and had enough food to feed seven of us. Every dish was very well cooked and tasted really nice. We will try the restaurant soon but if their take away food is an indicator then they are a very nice place to go and eat.

Looking for a reasonable priced restaurant in town we came across this venue. Curry night on Tuesday, starter main and coffee for £10.95! Take your own wine and no corkage charge. The menu was extensive. Five star hygiene classification. The table was nicely laid with linen tablecloth. The Curry was excellent and portions were ample and hot with good service.... More
