4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Very nice Indian, not my favourite Indian in term of the food in the town but a very close contender, overall quality and price they are offer he best sit down Indian meal in the down. No entertainment for the kids so take your own

“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

You might think because it's in a small rural town you shouldn't expect too much but you'll be surprised. All the basics are good, the varieties of rice, side dishes and nan breads in particular deserve a special mention. Main dishes are generous and nicely presented, just avoid the king prawns which are like rubber bullets. Prices are reasonable and all in all, a night out here represents good value. Note the special offer on Thursday nights. It would be nice to see just a couple of traditional (made in-house) Indian desserts instead of those deep frozen ice creams. Look forward to trying again sometime.

“A Very Busy Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

If you've not booked before you come, you don't stand much of a chance getting in although to be fair they almost always can manage to squeeze you on somewhere. The menu is varied with most things for the discerning Indian lover. The food is excellent and the staff attentive without being overbearing. Great portion size and a complimentary plate of fruit at the end of your meal to send you away happy. A fantastic restaurant with a fantastic atmosphere. Have been many times and will definitely keep going back. Thoroughly recommended for a visit.
