We visited here last night with my old Uncle Ted who is now 90 years old.
I am an Indian food nut and reckon I am worthy of making a proper assessment on Indian Restaurant food having 33 years experience!
The staff were lovely and it was nice to meet the proprietor Micheal.
The ambience was also very nice with sitar music which i like.
The food was simply out of this World, on a par with So India in Pulborough which is now my local. Interestingly, they own that too!
The attentive service was also very nice.
My Uncle got tipsy and a great time was had by all.
So thank thank you Micheal and all the staff there, we had a great night and will definately go back.
Even my Wife enjoyed the food and she doesn't normally like Indian food!

We were introduced to this restaurant in April by family when we visited from Canada, and it was such a fantastic experience! The staff were friendly and efficient, the décor charming and the food was absolutely incredible! We especially recommend the Tiki Chicken Masala. Michal and his staff made the entire experience one of the real highlights of our trip. We liked it so much we went back the next night! Thanks so much for the memories, Michal! Jeff & Tammy

We have been visiting this restaurant since it opened and have always enjoyed the food, wine and the company. The waiters, Sav, Oddy and Ariff are so friendly and experienced you feel like one of their family coming to eat at their house. Not forgetting the chefs, whom one never sees but must be given 10 out of 10 for the delicious food cooked and presented to a very high standard..
Micheal, our host, has always been enthusiastic in his approach to business and is forever striving for perfection, he has found it here.
We are always introducing new customers and not one has said they would not hesitate in going back.

Great food, great atmosphere. Despite running a busy restaurant, Michael our host was attentive and generous to a fault. He gave of his time to explain dishes and slipped in a taster between courses and a brandy to round off the evening. We will return again and maybe again!

We have tried most of the Indian restaurants in and around Chichester over the years and this one on the Bognor Road is by far the best. (Second best is its sister restaurant in Chichester opposite Kwik Fit with parking round the back).
We have eaten in the restaurant and had takeaways - both good.
Very rarely oily, good Naans, decent portions - always a struggle to finish!
King Prawn Dhansak is highly recommended - seriously BIG prawns (in shell but easy to extract) in a delicious sauce. Excellent okra dishes. Love Channa Dahl and spicy popadoms too.
Good for couples, work lunches, family get togethers, business lunches and eating on your own.
Run by a cheery chap called Michael who knows all the regulars and happily welcomes newcomers - always on the lookout to improve your dining experience.
