“What a nice surprise”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Another new venue for the Maidstone curry club to visit in 2013. Upon arrival we weren't expecting much as the outside of the building could do with an update. The staff were helpful and friendly. The food was well presented and the dishes had an authentic Bengali taste. The beer was cold and price great. Not a bad word to be said here chaps. Highly recommended for the curry lovers. Get the dulex in guys and you score higher.

“Mixed review”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The look of the restaurant is quite drab and dreary, but ive heard good things about the food. IMe and some friends thought we'd go there reluctant of the exterior. We were met with a friendly greeting and happy to help staff. The food arrived within great time but wasnt amazing. The mains were quite oily but overall enjoyable but the desserts seem to be slightly overpriced. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed though, what you would expect from this type of restaurant. Overall, pretty average.

“Really good food at reasonable prices.”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Don't let the outside appearance put you off. The inside is clean and warm and the quality of the food is really good. We started with poppadums which were warm and freshly cooked then chose the Lamb Jubbily and the Chicken Jubbily with a couple of veg dishes and chappati and rice. All was freshly cooked and served quickly by very pleasant waiters. We also had two pints of Kingfisher and two glasses of red wine and the bill came to £50. Very reasonable. Although the restaurant was quite busy we felt that the pace of the service was just right and we didn't feel under pressure to leave and vacate our table.
Really a very pleasant experience which we look forward to repeating.
