Visited after reading previous reports. Had to make a return visit because I really wasn't sure what to say after my first meal. No doubt the food is nicely spiced, the service superb and the prices are average. A nice cosy atmosphere all makes for a good experience. My second meal there was well above average - chosen from the chefs recommended list - melt in the mouth chicken wonderfully spiced. Will certainly call in again when in the area.

Visited on a Saturday evening with my wife and 7 yr old son . Found the restaurant through trip advisor and it was research well done . Friendly welcome and prompt drinks and poppadoms ,Starters were tasty ( king prawn puree asked for spicy and got it) well presented and again promptly served , 3 empty plates ! Main course again was well flavoured and spiced and for the mild curry lovers my son loved the chicken korma ! All in all was a great meal served by lovely people and any curry lovers visiting pompey should make this a must, We will be back !!! Thanks again. .

Visited here for my 30th birthday and it was fantastic. There were around 30 of us and we were very well catered for. Food and service were great. Everyone commented on how good it was.

Great food and friendly attentive staff. Delicious deserts, rare in an Indian restaurant. Very extensive menu, hard to choose, so will have to visit again to try something different!
