I find it hard to see why some reviews are so scathing. This is not a Birmingham Curry mile restaurant and you wouldn't expect it to be. The staff were friendly, the owner has a very dry sense of humour which might be taken the wrong way by some and may account for some of the negative reviews. The menu... More

Dear Manager smile a little. Couldn't complain about the food when our family fancied a take away on our last night... Shame the Owner/Manager had a face like a smacked bottom... Cheer up you took €50 off us

The food is outstanding, the onion bahjis are worth the visit in itself. The chef flavours the food to an excellent standard and the staff are attentive despite being extremely busy. The... More

I had not been back to Protaras for 8 years and remember coming to this restaurant (at its old premises). My wife and I was so looking forward to the onion bhajee as nothing has compared since lol and they were just as good as they were back then! Cannot fault the service and quality here even though we just... More

Always like to try an Indian restaurant whenever we are on holiday. The food was quite nice but portions were small. Not like our favourite restaurant back home. Very quiet the night we were there. Nice setting , sat upstairs overlooking the Main Street.
