Came here for a change - had read a great review in the Echo and thought we'd try it! Waste of money! Initial welcome was good but deteriorated from there. Popadoms came followed seconds later by our starter - my prawn dish was lovely, partners chicken was bland and didn't taste remotely of oregano - it was covered in cream. These were the highlight! £14.50 for a main course that was dried lamb and covered in chunks of cucumber which mixed with the tasteless biriyani sauce was foul. My chicken was salty and tasteless. Topped off by a waiter who appeared drunk - was drinking something from a tumbler and became increasingly clumsy as the night progressed - I ordered a 2nd bottle of beer for him to take all our glasses with him and having to drink from the bottle! The place appears busy because it's tiny and the reviewer in the echo must have had all the stops pulled out because of who they were. Better quality places not far away and cheaper, cleaner and sober staff. Try goa in seaburn for example.

Went to this place after having driven past it on numerous occasions. We were welcomed nicely, but not too effusively, which I like. When we studied the menu we were able to see that it was quite different from a run of the mill Indian restaurant. There were lots of interesting specialties on the menu, including a brilliant scallop starter. They do serve the curries we have all grown to know and love, but we all tried something new and different. Everything was of an excellent quality and the taste combinations were inspired. They had a few dishes with tamarind in, which I love. The staff were courteous and helpful and didn't hover over you. We will definitely be going back in the near future and telling all our friends who like good Indian food about it.
