“Buffet special, probably the best I've had”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Three of us turned up on spec for the buffet special at £10.95 a head. It is performed a bit differently. You get your chosen starters brought to the table and then you aren't let loose on the buffet until after your starter dishes have been cleared away and a fresh plate is brought to your table. The restaurant was fairly quiet and plenty of staff were in attendance so the poor service was a bit of a mystery. As a consequence the downside, it seemed like we were a bit of an inconvenience to the staff, as if they would have preferred to be elsewhere. The upside, and this does make up for it the food was really good. Starters good, main courses good (I added some chillies from the hot dishes to the milder dishes to add a bit more spice), a huge nan bread presented to your table on a hook, (for dramatic effect I suppose!), was good. Definitely good value and worth another visit for the buffet at least.

“Service ok, food not the best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

No issues with service. I have eaten in Indian Restaurants all over the world and prefer spicy curries. My starter (tuna kebab) was pretty hot but the main course, for a meal that wasn't supposed to be too hot, certainly was. All I could taste was pepper and I didn't like it. I think the main course was the worst indian meal I can recall having.

“Exceptional value for money!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

We're customed curry eaters, but opted for the buffet option and we weren't disappointed. It's great value for money - and you're still personally served poppadoms and a fantastic mixed starter. The buffet is for the main meal only and there's a huge selection to choose from - and unlike many other buffets, the food is fresh and regularly topped up rather than keeping loads in the pot at one time. £11 each, fab food, and a beautiful restaurant. We'll definitely be back.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

The service was pretty good but the food was a little disappointing.
I think I will try another restaurant next time I visit Harrogate.
