A group of us had lunch here. Wonderful food, great service with lots to eat. All food cooked fresh with plenty of flavor. Small and personal with quiet music in the back ground. Can't wait to go again.

Consistently good food. A wide range of food on the menu. A little long to deliver but worth every minute as the food is cooked fresh, hot and it tastes great. Nice atmosphere and very good service. Good value for money and definitely worth a visit. A hidden gem in Tunbridge Wells; most probably over looked due to the parking. Worth taking the time to find a parking space.

Went there a few days ago and somehow all the staff have dissapeared and left a one man band there who was doing all the cooking and all the waitering... for six tables....! We were there for an hour and a half and had only had a bottle of wine served and some popadoms!! Its a mystery as to why he even opened, he caused more damage than good as peed off quite a few customers in the process. Tables were left uncleared and once our food did come out, it was all wrong and what was right looked to be in minimal proportions, we had to leave it as had a puppy at home. VERY DISSAPOINTING.

I first tried this restaurant with reservation. I was however pleasantly surprised by this small restaurant. It could easily be missed; it definitely doesn't stand out. Once inside the staff are incredibly friendly and the service is superb.

A lot of the dishes are comically named re-makes of 'traditional' Anglo-Indian dishes, but please don't let this put you off. The food is good quality and well above the standard of most similar restaurants in the area. The food is reasonably priced and combined with the good service it makes for a very pleasant night out.

It should be noted that the card machine seems to be constantly out of order. Bring cash along!

I visited this restaurant last night with two friends having not been before.
It's set inside a small period house in the centre of town and when we walked in at 8pm there were only two people there which worried us. However, we were seated, given menus and had a drinks order taken and shortly several more groups of people turned up.
The menu has a lovely little piece about the Gurkhas and their food as an introduction which I thought was nice. The menu isn't vast and has a good range of prices from £6.95 to £12.95. We asked for a recommendation which he gave us and we ordered and were not disappointed.
Service was delivered by just one chap but it wasn't slow, nor too fast.
The atmosphere definitely improved with the extra people and we had a lovely evening.
I would definitely go back, and its a great alternative to a traditional curry house.
The only downside is they only took cash so go prepared!
