I've used this place 3 times and every time the same thing, you get rushed to finish so they can get you out the door and new bodies in your seats. Won't be going back for a fourth time.

The food was extremely fresh, tasty and full of flavour - something many buffets seem to struggle with. The breads were also spot on - not too doughy and not too flat. We have also tried the takeaways (again superb) but haven't eaten in the restaurant yet for a proper (non buffet) meal. We hope to soon!

This is a very busy restaurant, so worth booking at the weekends. Food always good with a lively atmosphere

Rurally located in High Halden on a quiet lane, in lovely grounds in Kent is an unusual setting for an Indian restaurant but what a restaurant. I'll start with the staff....wonderful...nothing too much trouble, knowledgeable and fun. The setting.....low ceiling but bright and light, bags of ambience. The menu......everything and more, pages of food,including venison and many other unusual dishes,... More

On my last visit here the food was superb and I was very much looking forward to our meal. This time around I was very disappointed with my chicken tikka bhuna, it was very bland. My father had a chicken madras that was the same, there was heat but no flavour. Are there any decent Indian restaurants around anymore???

Remarkable value for £10 - much as you wish to eat buffet of various curries (beef, lamb, veg, chicken) plus rice, naan bread, chips, salad. Comfortable restaurant with good service and polite staff. Just the place to take hungry teenagers! plus ample parking.

We have used this restaurant regularly for five years now. The food has always been first class with plenty of selections and whether you eat-in or take-away. The best way to form an opinion is to use somewhere regularly and this is the only restaurant we visit where the quality never lessens. It is advisable to book on a Friday... More

This is always my first choice of restaurant for my birthday each year. Such amazing food - I more than look forward to the Tikka Duck starter - simply amazing! Always such good service and can guarantee a good meal.

We booked a table of 4 for a Saturday evening at 7.30. A few tables already taken but it soon filled up so advisable to book and it also looked busy on the takeaway side. The food was absolutely delightful and so nice to have a different choice to the usual menu at most other establishments. Lots of fish options... More
