I have eaten here a couple of times and the food is good. The staff are very helpful especially the manager when booking a large party. It is good value and tge restaurant has a lovely atmosphere.

This was the first time ordering from here, I was really pumped to try it over great reviews and word of mouth. Unfortunately I didn't think so.
The food was a really low quantity, especially for the price that was paid, not the best tasting and not at all filling.
The delivery was appalling, had to phone back to ask where it was after waiting 1 hour, the excuse was "I've only just realised where you are, I will now pack it".

I wouldn't recommend, and I will not be trying this again.

All in all, average food and poor service.

Have been to this curry house many times with our friends, had a different meal each time. They never disappoint. The service is excellent, never rushed, the Jazz guitarist playing in the background is perfect.
If you have not been here before, take your friends, you will enjoy it! Please note, check table availability well in advance, it`s a very popular restaurant.
Advice, if it`s a Birthday, let them know!

I'm astonished by the negative reviews. We have lived in Canterbury for 9 years and have used delivery, take out and eat in (both for two and large group) regularly. We return again and again and recommend it to everyone. The service is just at a perfect balance of thoughtful care. The food is excellent - obviously better eaten when freshly cooked but still fine when delivered. If people can't enjoy the company of their group and wait for the food then perhaps they need to stick to MacDonalds.
