“Fantastic food and fantastic service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

This was the best curry my family and i have had in Ipswich for a long time. The staff were extremely welcoming on a busy Saturday night. We stopped in to get a last minute table but they were full. However, they kindly took our number and called us when a table became free. Food was perfect and they were more than happy to make space for our newborn baby and his buggy. Will definitely be back

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

Checked out trip advisor and tried this place for the first time. First thing noticed was the place was spotless clean. Super service and very tasty food. What more can you ask for. 10 out of ten.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

As good as anywhere I have eaten "up north", every dish was excellent. Really good level of spice and fresh vegetables were cooked to perfection. Regarding the previous review, I thought the tarka dahl was excellent and had a classic flavour and consistency. Coriander and garlic naan was the pick of the naans even though the peshwari was again very classic in taste. Veg dish came with a good selection of vegetables and chickpeas, others in party told me the meat was nicely cooked. Service was attentive (perhaps a bit too much, I like to be left to chat with people and not asked if we need drinks every 5 minutes). If I still lived in Ipswich I would happily eat here every week.

Considered only giving 4/5 due to slightly small space but when you eat in an old building you need to expect some awkward angles/corners (they have an upstairs but I can't comment as we were downstairs).

“Very good food... Bit of a small place...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

Business dinner with colleague... Really impressed with the service... They were extremely attentive... The rstaurant is on the small side, and our table was very small, which is never good when you order a number of dishes...

Having said that, the food was exceptional... I had a chicken chat purée to start, followed by a chicken naga curry with mushroom rice... All of which was excellent... The only disappointment was the side dish tarka dall, which was too runny, but had all the flavour...

I would definitely visit again for the food and service..
