“I love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

I have sampled many a curry and this is ranked in my top 5. Half pub, half Indian restaurant so who could argue with that 1! Have curries here most Friday night and they know us by our names which is a nice touch. Restaurant is clean and pleasant, non of your bog standard flock wall paper either!

“not up to its reviews”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

We do like to try different Indian restaurants when away from home and have had many in lots of different places. A few days before we had had an excellent Indian meal in Tenby so were looking forward to this one with the family.
The experience on the night we visited was disappointing and really not up to the mark.
A long wait for the courses, servers pushing hard on the drinks, four of the starters were not finished as they were so poor and warranted complaint, service was not good with a server fishing around in a dish to see what had been brought out and an order forgotten. The food was only average.
This is one of the rare times we have been disappointed and probably the only time not much can be said to the credit of the restaurant except for the fact that the servers were cheery and friendly.
Perhaps we had come on a bad night as I see there are differing reviews.
