Only another couple in this beautiful restaurant. WHY.?. Ordered drinks, waiter unfriendly and not very pleasant. Starters arrived , plates covered in iceberg lettuce and very little else. I had 2 small pieces of chicken tikka, which had been reheated and were hard. 2 small dips came between 4. Chilli one was mad hot and burnt all of us. Mains... More

We have been on a several month journey across Europe, and frankly we did not expect to find the best Indian Food of the trip anywhere in Ireland, let alone in Ballymena. We ate here several times and the value, atmosphere, and service was excellent. We enjoyed our first dinner here so much we came back three days in a... More

Speed of service is remarkable, especially as it is delivered in a considered, unhurried and unobtrusive way. Surprisingly diverse menu, and expert guidance from the senior waiter enabled us to select an exotic combination . . . tasty and attractively presented.

Almost always a very good meal. Only issue is the meat in the butter chicken is shredded or chopped, meaning bones and all. Come on guys chicken breast only!

We tried the £7.95 3 course lunch which is based on a restricted menu of four starters and six of the most popular curry dishes. Starters were superb as usual, homemade and not the bought in supermarket type that so many Indian restaurants have resorted to. For main courses we had chicken dansak and punjabi chicken tikka masala. Lovely flavours... More
